In this work experimental measurements of the permeability of fully interlaced 3D-woven carbon fibre preforms are performed using the unsaturated parallel flow method. The effect on the permeability from three different parameters is studied by altering the architecture of woven preforms and varying mould sizes in a duct flow set-up. Influences from the geometrically different surface layers of the woven preforms, from fibre volume fraction and from warp yarn crimp are studied. The measurements show negligible influence on the permeability from crimp and the fraction of weave surface layers while the fibre volume fraction has a prominent influence. However, the effect is not consistent in terms of fibre volume fraction variation alone but depends on how it is varied.
