Abstract

Composite materials have gained increasing attention in the past several years due to their superior mechanical properties and improved strength-to-weight ratio over traditional materials. Resin transfer molding (RTM) is an attractive composite processing method due to its potential for providing consistently superior parts at a lower cost than other manufacturing techniques. The RTM process involves a large number of variables that are strongly related to the system performance, for example mold fill
