Methods to Determine the Permeability of Textile Reinforcements

Methods to Determine the Permeability of Textile Reinforcements

Reinforcing textile permeability is an important material property used to better understand the infiltration phase of Liquid Composite Molding processes. A range of methods exists to determine the permeability of textile porous media all with their respective advantages. In this work, facilities to characterize the saturated and unsaturated in-plane permeability using rectilinear (1D) or radial flow (2D) methods are presented. A comparison of the in-plane permeability results obtained using each test method was carried out, together with the required testing time and material usage. Furthermore, a simulation approach to predict the permeability based on scanned images is presented.
