Abstract

Numerical and analytical models dealing with different physics involved in pultrusion are combined in the optic of an integrated analysis of the process. The impregnation stage is simulated by means of a CFD multiphase model, evaluating the pressure and velocity field in the liquid resin. Composite temperature and degree of cure are inferred using 3D thermo-chemical models. Finally, contact conditions, stresses and strains are derived applying computational simulation and analytical models, in order to predict the final pulling force. Different product sizes are considered, simulating suitable processing condition.
