Analysis of Temperature Fields Distribution in the Technological Tooling for Transfer Molding


Objectives: Distribution of temperature fields in technological tooling for transfer molding of carbon fiber composite loadbearing rod elements has been studied in this article. Methods: Computational study has been conducted by finite element analysis. Specific features of simulation of heat flows, temperature and deformation fields distribution in the model of compound tooling and carbon perform, impregnated with polymeric matrix, were described. Findings: It was studied how thermal deformations of composite tooling can affect the dimensional precision of the manufactured composite rods. Improvements: The results of calculations are used for evaluation the uniformity of temperature fields in the preform and tooling in the process of polymeric matrix curing.

Keywords: Accuracy of Manufacture, Carbon Fiber Curing, Finite Element Analysis, Transfer Molding, Technological Tooling
