Abstract

A small-scale filament winding apparatus was built to determine surface temperature distributions during actual filament winding runs and the resulting temperatures compared to those predicted by a numerical model. Infrared thermography was used to determine the surface temperature of the composite during each experiment. A numerical model was used to identify processing windows that lead to a well-consolidated product. The model is also used to identify winding conditions such as infrared energy input, winding speed, and composite thickness that result in a consolidated product.
