Modelling the Resin Infusion Process. Part II: Accounting for Deformation of Textiles by Analogy to Thermomechanical Models

An important class of production processes for fibre reinforced plastics are flow processes (e.g. RTM, VARI). The simulation of flow processes with textiles deforming during the process is a big challenge. Therefore it is difficult to embed conventional numerical approaches in industrial environments. This two parted paper shows a new approach for modelling of these processes with deformable geometries: analogies to thermomechanical relations are applied to achieve this aim. The approach presented in the first paper for constant geometries is expanded in this second paper for deforming porous media, so that a VARI-simulation in 3D is possible. With this approach it is shown that with actual material models VARI-processes with a 1D-flow can be modelled with an equivalent RTM-process.
