To estimate the variation of viscosity according to the chemical reactions, we added a rheokinetical model (26) based on the experimental results and we implemented a new type of boundary condition to model the adhesion of the reactive fluid on the mold surface.
To simulate the adhesion of the reactive fluid on the mold surface, we developed a model to fix the fluid particles when they reached a certain viscosity and when they are exposed to a certain distance from the mold (or the fixed material) during a certain time.
