Abstract

In its simplest form, Darcy's Law describes a linear relationship between the area-averaged volumetric flow rate through an isotropic, homogeneous porous medium and the pressure difference across that medium sustaining the flow. Darcy Law-based macroscopic models can be used to describe the flow behavior in BlackglasTM/NextelTM material systems during resin transfer molding (RTM). The simulation of component fill process behavior provides insight into the impact of preform and tool design on process behavior, allowing designers to assess manufacturability impacts of design decisions.
