Pultrusion Process Modeling


A basic one-dimensional heat transfer model of the pultrusion process for thermo-setting resin composites was formulated. The model, employing a Galerkin finite-element approach, is the basic development. It can be expanded to a general characterization of the process and extended to characterize the pultrusion process for thermoplastic resin composites. The application of the basic model is demonstrated.
