Abstract

The primary goal of this study was to develop 2‐D and 3‐D computer simulation schemes for the mold filling processes of structural reaction injection molding (SRIM) and resin transfer molding (RTM) under isothermal conditions. The developed computer code was able to simulate the mold filling in molds with complicated geometry, Experiments were also carried out based on flow vitalizations. Experimental results were compared with the numerical simulations.
