Abstract

Thermosetting matrix composite materials are often subject to a curing process to enhance the mechanical properties of the final product.In recent years computational models of the curing process allowed for a remarkable time and cost compression with respect to trial and error procedures. Most of the proposed models, however, rely on deterministic hypothesis. In this paper a multi-scale non deterministic approach to cure process simulation has been proposed, evidencing the effect of stochastic perturbations of fibers distribution on simulative results on macro-scale.
