Analysis of the Flow Front Progression During the Injection of Locally Reinforced Carbon Fibre Textiles in the RTM-Process

Analysis of the Flow Front Progression During the Injection of Locally Reinforced Carbon Fibre Textiles in the RTM-Process

Based on the industrialized production of the CFRP components for the BMW i3 and BMW i8 the next step to improve the economy of the implementation of CFRP in automotive large scale production is to reduce the material intensity by producing highly loaded, locally reinforced parts. To gain knowledge about the impregnation behaviour of textiles with ply drop-offs in the Resin Transfer Molding Process, the current article deals with the visualisation of the flow front progression in locally reinforced textiles in the Resin Transfer Moulding Process. Therefore an innovative glas plate tool could be implemented to get maximum information and achieve an optimum in correlation between flow front visualisation and the serial High Pressure Resin Transfer Moulding Process.
