This is a two-part theoretical and experimental study on the estimation of kinetic parameters associated with the curing of a thermoset epoxy resin. In Part I, the estimation procedure is presented. This estimation procedure is based on a method referred to as the Box-Kanemasu method, which involves the minimization of a least squares function, and it represents a new application of this method. The kinetic parameters under consideration were the Arrhenius constants associated with two rate constants in a kin…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
