The problem of excessive heat buildup in a heat diffusion supported thermosetting process may lead, especially in the case of thick composite profiles, to compromised quality or even thermal degradation of the final product. A computer simulation of a real manufacturing process demonstrates this intrinsic weakness of the conventional manufacturing process by showing nonuniformities in the degree of cure development and a temperature inversion at the end of the processing cycle. Those nonuniformities …
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.
