Resin Transfer Molding of a Wind Turbine Blade
Application ID: 105491
This example shows the modeling of a resin transfer molding (RTM) process for a wind turbine blade using the Two-Phase Flow, Level Set, Brinkman Equations interface.
Resin is injected into a preform consisting of different composites with different anisotropic permeabilities.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Design Module and
- either the CFD Module, Microfluidics Module, Polymer Flow Module, or Porous Media Flow Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
