The rheological behavior of epoxy resin for resin transfer molding (RTM) was studied with DSC analysis and viscosity experiments. A rheological model based on the dual-Arrhenius equation was established and used to simulate the rheological behavior of the resin. The model prediction determined from the dual-Arrhenius equation was in good agreement with experimental data. The processing window of the resin system can be well determined based on the developed model. The rheological model is important for processing simulation and quality control of RTM processing for high performance composites.
