In the resin transfer molding (RTM) process, locations of gates and vents are important design parameters that have a great impact on the resin flow pattern and mold filling time. The resin flow pattern is crucial to the quality and properties of the final product. A good resin flow pattern can cover all dry areas in the mold with liquid resin; whereas, a poor flow pattern will lead to some dry spots, which directly result in defects. In this paper, a single gate, multiple vents location… Expand
