A control-volume finite-element model is developed to analyze the infiltration of a fiber preform with resin under nonisothermal conditions within a high-permeability resin-distribution medium based vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM) process. Due to the exposure to high temperatures during preform infiltration, the resin first undergoes… CONTINUE READING
