    Abstract

    A model is presented that relates the cure cycle (cure temperature, cure pressure, cure time) to the local temperature, viscosity, degree of cure of the resin, and resin flow perpendicular to the fibers. The results of the model are applicable to the curing process for epoxy matrix composites.
