This database supports the design and implementation of liquid composite molding (LCM) and serves as a repository for permeability measurements. Version 1.0 contains more than 100 data points measured at NIST for different woven, random, unidirectional, and stitched glass fabrics. Fiber volume fractions range from about 10% to over 55%. Data were measured with saturated, unsaturated and thru-thickness techniques. The data currently included were generated by unidirectional saturated flow or radial unsaturated flow techniques. Theunidirectional experiments also include a number of thru-thickness measurements.
