A unified approach to determine principle permeability of fibrous porous materials

Weitzenbock, J.R., Shenoi, R.A. and Wilson, P.A. (2002) A unified approach to determine principle permeability of fibrous porous materials Polymer Composites, 23, (6), pp. 1132-1150. (doi:10.1002/pc.10507).

Record type: Article


This paper presents a unified approach (UA) to determining permeability in liquid composite molding. The UA applies both to the channel flow and the radial flow experiment and it unifies the data processing of almost all known permeability measurement methods. It permits principal permeability to be calculated from experimental measurements which are carried out in an arbitrary co-ordinate system. This paper describes the UA and its main features. Further, the UA is applied to a number of experimental results for radial flow and channel flow measurements to demonstrate its validity. In addition, the algorithms of current permeability measurement methods are classified according to the UA, and, where necessary, differences are discussed. Some data processing algorithms were found to contain weaknesses or shortcomings.
