Abstract: In this research a model to simulate both the filling the curing stages of a reaction injection molding (RIM) process in complex three-dimensional molds is developed. This model can be used to predict not only the temperature and conversion changes with time but also the front position during fllling. Using given physical and chemical properties of the RIM system, moldability can be determined in advance. The numerical techniques used in this research include adaptation of the SIMPLE algorithm developed by Pa…
