In process modeling of continuous fiber composites, matrix flow through aligned fiber beds is traditionally described by Darcy's law, which relates matrix flow rate to matrix pressure gradient, matrix viscosity, and fiber bed permeability. This phenome nological relationship was originally derived for macroscopically isotropic beds of spheri cal or sphere-like particles. Hence it is necessary to establish the conditions under which this relationship may be extended to fiber beds, which are… CONTINUE READING
