Abstract

Due to the partial impregnation and limited pressure available for curing Out-of-Autoclave (OoA) prepreg, modeling the air transport through the tows becomes applicable. Focus is given on predicting the tow fill time for through thickness resin flow taking into account the air evacuation state. This work presents models that can be applied at different stages of the OoA consolidation and cure process, such as models for continuous air extraction, loss of connection with the vacuum source and delayed evacuation.
