Fiber clustering during the curing of composite materials

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In an attempt to explain the phenomenon of fiber clustering, the low Reynolds number flow through an array of rigid cylinders is investigated. Both cases of a regular and a slightly perturbed array of cylinders are studied. In particular, the forces exerted on the cylinders by the fluid are derived for both cases and a stability analysis is conducted to predict the motion of the array.
