FIBREFORM Report Summary

Project ID: G1ST-CT-2000-50015
Funded under: FP5-GROWTH
Country: United Kingdom

Permeability Test Rig

The Fibreform project has developed a permeability rig. The purpose of the rig is to give a comparative indication of permeability and tool closure forces associated with various fibre packs or types of fabric. Initial results show that the rig consistently demonstrates differences in the permeability of different types of fabric, the decrease in permeability due to an increase in fibre pack thickness for a comparative tool closure distance and decreasing permeability due to decreasing mould tool closure distance.
