Abstract [en]

Injection processing of composite materials most often includes infiltration of a thermoset resin into a multi-scale porous fabric. Controlling the fluid flow within the multiscale fabric is essential for the quality of the final composite material, since the transport of fluid between regions with different scales plays an important role in phenomena such as void formation and filtration of particle doped resins. In this work, the transient flow behaviour in dual scale porous media is investigated with Micro Particle Image Velocimetry in order to enhance the knowledge and control of the processing of multi-scale composites so that their quality can be improved. Experiments show that the fluid transport between the two scales can be controlled by the injection velocity. Validation of the measured velocity fields furthermore shows excellent agreement with theory.
