Abstract
International audience; Modern composite structures make use of the possibilities offered by composite materials to add stiffness and strength only where they are needed and in the direction required. This ability to tailor material properties to the needs of the structure have led to significant weight reductions; they have also allowed one to develop new architectures and design shapes, as composites materials are usually formed at the same time as the part they form. The Liquid Composite Moulding (LCM) family of processes, comprising RTM, CRTM, RTMLight and Resin Infusion VARTM, involves the placement of dry fibrous reinforcement into a mould and then, after ...
