For the simulation of the injection stage of the manufacturing
process of composite materials, the permeability
value of the textile is an important input parameter.
The permeability of textiles can be determined experimentally,
however, this is a time and resource consuming
process, and no standard procedure is yet available. In
this paper we present an easy to use software package
to simulate the flow through a textile model, and predict
the permeability. Results are presented for a woven
fabric and are compared with experimental results.
