    This class reviews powerful analysis techniques that bring manufacturing knowledge together with detailed material modeling in order to perform comprehensive and accurate analysis of your parts, both as manufactured and in use. In addition, powerful optimization techniques allow the choice of the best gate location for your parts, and avoid over design of your parts, using a process of integrative optimization.

    Key Learnings

    • Describe the significance of fiber orientation in plastic part performance
    • Know the limitations of ordinary structural analysis as applied your parts
    • Determine the best gate location for a part using optimization techniques
    • Appreciate the compromises encountered in the injection molding process
