This class reviews new functionality in Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight software and discusses recent and current research directions of Moldflow development. We cover the following capabilities: viscoelastic warp calculations, improved wall slip calculations, the influence of mold deflection, ejection force predictions, analysis of mold fatigue, flow imbalances (airflow), 3D compression molding, 3D conformal cooling, 3D hot runner elements, crystallization analysis, long fiber composites, and mesh preparation.
- Identify when to use viscoelastic residual stress calculation
- Explain the influence of mold deflection on pressure, shrinkage, and warpage prediction
- Enable a wall slip calculation to simulate jetting effects
- Perform a 3D flow analysis which can capture shear heating induced flow imbalances
