Vibration- and vacuum-assisted curing experiments of laminate composites were carried out using a method involving a flat curing chamber and heat transfer fluid. The laminates were made with woven glass fabric and epoxy resin systems, and were subjected to void content analysis. Of the wide range of frequencies studied (0-8 kHz), the low frequency vibrations (around 10 Hz) resulted in significant void content reduction (by approximately 60%) compared to curing without vibration assistance....[Show more]
