Abstract The existence of void type defects in composite laminates manufactured using the liquid composite molding process alters the mechanical characteristics of the final product. The object of this paper is to present a procedure to simulate mold filling and to incorporate void formation. The model is composed of a unique combination of robust and accurate numerical algorithms for solving the transport equation. The saturation ratio is a macroscopic entity yet it is clearly the consequence… CONTINUE READING
