Fiat is one of the top car manufacturers in the world and is using the power of simulation extensively in their product development. In this class, we will show how simulation technology can be used to validate design and quantify defects that can show up during manufacturing and final assembly. We will visualize production defects in plastic parts using Autodesk® Moldflow® and Autodesk Showcase®.

Key Learnings

  • Describe how assembly not only causes stress, but unwanted deformation
  • Use Autodesk Moldlfow and Showcase to visualize sink mark defects
  • Explain how sink marks occur on plastic parts
  • Use Autodesk Moldfow and structural analysis products to simulate assembly of injection-molded parts

Bortolotti Elena (Italy, Turin, 1982, July 4th) - graduated in 2008 in materials science at University of Turin. After one year of internship at FIAT Research Centre (CRF), I worked for two years at Magneti Marelli on a research project. At the moment I work at CRF on activities of simulation of injection molding process with Moldflow.
