A pultrusion analysis is formulated from frist principles to understand temperature, conversion, pressure, and pulling force. A mechanistic kinetic model is described which has accuracy over a wide range of temperatures. The heat transfer model is developed using these kinetics, and process data is in good agreement with the predictions. Pultrusion pressure is analyzed using special coordinates for deformable bodies, and predictions are in qualitative and quantitative agreement with data, thought the latter may only be coincidental. Finally, a pulling force model is suggested without verification in which contributions from friction was the major component.
