Heat Transfer in Composites Processing

March 30, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PDT

Heat transfer during composites processing is an important mechanism to understand as it greatly influences the thermal history and in turn outcome (material properties) of a composite part. It is important to understand that the temperature setting on the equipment is not necessarily the temperature that the part sees.

In this webinar we will look at heat transfer mechanisms during processing in more detail. Theory, simulation, and experimental results will be used to describe and explain the concepts. Specific cure environments commonly used in industry will be broken down into basic models, with key parameters highlighted and discussed in more detail. Information on analyzing various processes to successfully cure composites will be presented.

This presentation is part of the ongoing CKN webinar series. Content discussed in the webinar is linked to the Knowledge in Practice Centre, allowing users to access this and other content in a consistent and coherent manner.
