Modeling and Simulation of Resin Filling and Cure Processes in Molds Partially Filled with Porous Media

Abstract:

Article Preview

The complete and simultaneous simulation of the overall filling and curing processes is presented. Fluid flow in the porous medium is described by the Brinkman-Forchheimer flow model, and fluid flow in the clear fluid domain is described by the Navier-Stokes equations. The flow front is captured using the volume fraction concept and a compressive convective scheme. Energy conservation equation and resin conversion equation give the equations to obtain the temperature and degree of cure, respectively. The physical model is solved using a control volume based finite element method. A limited set of results is presented, showing the usefulness of the information obtained from the complete and simultaneous simulation of the overall real process.
