Composite process modelling and net-shape, complex geometry RTM tool design

Composite process simulation models will be developed that can capture effects of high temperature curing RTM resins and multiple part tools with varying coefficient of thermal expansion on mould tool design. Methods for applying the shape distortion results to automatic tool compensation in CAD software will also be developed. Finally, a tool design concept for high temperature, complex aero-engine component (described by the topic manager) will be proposed and validated by a complete injection/curing/demould trial showing the main principles of the tool concept. The actual part produced will also be used for validating the simulation and compensation methods. Please refer to the full topic descriptions document published in this call.
