The results show that the resin flow and compaction of fiber bed start from the top surface and gradually spread into the interior region, and the non-uniform resin flow along the thickness direction causes a gradient distribution of fiber volume fraction in the thick composite part. A cross-plied composite laminate model with a thin interlaminar layer was constructed, and the effect of the interlaminar transverse permeability on the flow–compaction behavior of the thick cross-plied laminate was numerically analyzed.
