Text Box: Fully automated data-acquisition system for conducting flow modeling experiments for resin flow through fiber reinforcement in LCM processes to manufacture polymer composites:

 

 

 


 

 


The above shown setup is also used for the permeability measurement experiments.

 

 


 


 

 

A recent innovation: pins in the mold to prevent the sliding of fiber mats during flow experiments

 

 

 

A radial flow mold to study the point-injection flows as well as to measure the in-plane permeability tensor.

      The flow shown above is the constant injection-rate flow in a random fiber mat.
