Achieving the best-performing composite part requires that the processing method and cure cycle create high-quality, low-void-content structures. If voids are present, the performance of the composite will be significantly reduced. There are multiple causes of voids in composite materials; they are generally categorized as voids that are due to volatiles (such as solvents, water) or voids that result from entrapped air. This chapter describes the analysis of various types of voids. It reviews techniques for analysis of voids at ply-drops, voids due to high fiber packing, and voids that occur in honeycomb core composites. The final section of the...
