Results from experiments and simulation of the cure behaviour of thick glass/epoxy laminates cured at low initial temperatures are presented. The objective is to study how sensitive the temperature development in a commercial epoxy is to initial cure temperature for a few different combinations of wall thickness and fiber content. The general accuracy of all the temperature predictions are good. For low initial cure temperatures (50–80°C), will however small inaccuracies in the reaction… CONTINUE READING
