The fi-nite-difference method was used to get the temperature distribution. This paper also deals with the ef-fect of some factors( such as the w inding velocity , the tape thickness and the laser heat source ) on thetemperature ditribution.Key words: Thermoset composites ，On-line curing ，Temperature distribution ，Degree of curing ，Laser heat sourceDocument code : ACLC number : TK214INTRODUCTIONsults for a glass/ polyester composite were ob-tained by Kim et al.( 1995 ).
