High Pressure Resin transfer molding (RTM) is an increasingly common form of moulding, using liquids and composites. It is primarily used to mold components with large surface areas, complex shapes and smooth finishes.
The purpose of using a CFD solver for such applications is to study the flow front and the overall behavior of the highly viscous liquid through the anisotropic/inhomogeneous porous media matrix.
