Abstract: 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…
