[top] Theoretical background

You do not need to be an expert in Finite Elements, numerical methods, mathematics or programming to use RTM-Worx. However, it is important to understand the assumptions and simplifications made in the model.

The background theory of the model used in RTM-Worx, the implementation and - maybe even more important - the inevitable design choices that are at the basis of the RTM-Worx software have recently been presented at the SAMPE 2002 Conference in Paris and the ISCM 2002, organised by the NLR, in Vollenhove, the Netherlands.
