The University of Bradford has been using Autodesk Simulation Moldflow software for many years to investigate key injection-molding effects such as fiber orientation, residual stresses, warpage, post-injection product performance, heat transfer, and feature replication. This class builds on our Autodesk University 2011 class and covers the experimental and computational analysis of short- and -fiber reinforced components during injection molding, along with thermal investigations of the micromolding process.
- Select the most appropriate analysis route for product development
- Understand the validity of analysis results with a view to final product geometry and performance
- Explain the process being analyzed for the injection molding of polymer composites and micromoldings
- Apply best practices for in-house Autodesk Simulation Moldflow analyses, leading to finite element modeling
