This class will discuss the requirements and workflow for simulating flow imbalances in injection molding that are caused by shear heating in branched runner systems. Validation case studies will also include the MeltFlipper design, as well as in-cavity flow imbalances that lead to race-track effects. This class will focus on the use of the Autodesk Moldflow Insight software.
- Use design options for avoiding flow imbalances
- Define the modeling requirements to simulate flow imbalances
- Describe the validation case-studies of flow imbalances
- Explain the theoretical causes of flow imbalance
