    Accuracy of injection molding simulation is influenced by many factors such as modeling of part geometry, mesh type and density, mathematical solution, and process settings. The focus of this class is the influence of material data on simulation precision and accuracy. This class outlines the background behind the development of Autodesk world-leading material-testing laboratories, the importance of material data to accurate simulations and, through sensitivity studies, the influence of uncertainties in material properties on simulation results.

    Key Learnings

    • Describe the sensitivity of simulations to uncertainties in material properties
    • Describe the operation of Autodesk material testing services
    • Describe the important link between material properties and simulation precision and accuracy
    • Describe sources of uncertainty in material data
