Guidelines are developed for molding large composite parts via structural reaction injection molding using glass preforms and polyisocyanurate resins. These are based on numerical simulations of the simultaneous heat transfer and reaction kinetics of a commercial system during and after mold filling. Premised requirements are that resin does not gel befxe the mold is filled. yet. reactions are sufficiently vigorous to approach completion. An existing mechanistic kinetic model is used and material parameters f…
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.
