Abstract:

Liquid composite molding techniques potentially offer the capability to fabricate high-performance composite products of complex shapes at high throughputs. Strong parameter uncertainties and variabilities inherent in the process have remained a fundamental impediment to a complete realization of the process potential and the widespread use of the process in commercial and DoD applications. The overall research objective is to overcome the fundamental impediments and significantly advance the processing science and technology, leading to capabilities for rapid, robust and affordable manufacturing of composites.
