The use of composite materials in large structures has increased in recent years. Aircraft industry has recently begun to investigate the field of Liquid Composite Molding (LCM) through research programs because of its ability to produce large parts at low cost. The present paper focuses on modeling a 3D radial impregnation through an anisotropic fibrous perform. As a preliminary work, it is assumed an isothermal flow and no hydro-mechanical coupling. Governing equations are Darcy’s law and mass conservation. Simulation is performed combining Boundary Element Method (BEM) with a lagrangian moving mesh method. An analytical solution is developed to assess the numerical model.
