Numerical Analysis for a Parallelepiped with Three-Dimensional Heat Transfer and Cure Reaction

Abstract

The parallelepiped problem is frequently encountered in the cure of thermosets. An analytical solution exists only when no reaction occurs in the resin and the thermal parameters are constant, for particular initial and boundary conditions. The problem is thus treated in a general way by considering heat transfer by conduction through the resin and heat evolved from the cure reaction. In this general case, the thermal parameters are temperature-dependent.
