Abstract

Our research encompasses measurements of kinetic, rheological and transport parameters during processing, as well as an investigation of the formation of 'imperfections' including voids and residual stresses. At the end of the production cycle, the physical/mechanical properties and durability of composites are determined. The experimental results are then checked against the theoretical predictions. The ultimate goal of our research is to automate the production cycle and enable one to program the manufacturing sequence in order to produce composites with desired characteristics. In this paper we shall limit our discussion to the results of two aspects of our investigation: the temperature distribution in the laminate and the changes in chemoviscosity during cure.
