Abstract: 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 to predict the permeability. Results are presented for
a woven fabric and two different non-crimp fabrics. The computed permeability values are
compared with experimental results.
