A 3D modelling approach for fluid progression during process simulation of wet compression moulding - Motivation & approach

Poppe, C.; Albrecht, F.; Krauß, C.; Kärger, L.

Wet compression moulding (WCM) provides large-scale production potential for continuous fibre-reinforced structural components due to simultaneous infiltration and draping during moulding (viscous draping). Due to thickness-dominated infiltration of the laminate, comparatively low cavity pressures are sufficient – a considerable economic advantage. Experimental and numerical investigations prove strong mutual dependencies between the physical mechanisms, especially between resin flow and textile forming. Understanding and suitable modelling of these occurring physical mechanisms is crucial for process development and final part design. While existing modelling approaches are suitable for infiltration of preformed fabrics within various liquid moulding technologies, such as CRTM/RTM or VARI, WCM requires a fully coupled simulation approach for resin progression and concurrent stack deformation. Thus, the key challenge is to efficiently link these two aspects in a suitable framework. First, this work demonstrates that a three-dimensional approach for fluid progression during moulding is needed to capture WCM-process boundary conditions. ... mehr
