Curing simulation of composites coupled with infrared heating

Abstract : Because of higher specific strength and stiffness, low weight, and good resistance to corrosion, the use of composite materials in aerospace structures has increased. Aircraft industry has recently begun to investigate Liquid Composites Molding techniques (LCM) through research programs because of its ability to produce large parts at a low cost. In this paper, we have not addressed the filling step during which the resin flows through fibrous media, but we investigate the numerical simulation of curing reinforced RTM-6 by infrared heating. Finite element based program COMSOL Multiphysics T has been used to simulate the curing process. Thermochemical model has been implemented in order to compute reaction rate as a function of reaction temperature and degree of conversion using a cure kinetic model.
