Abstract

It is necessary to simulate the molding process to predict the effect of processing conditions, part geometry and resin properties on the mechanical properties of a part injection molded from a fiber-filled material. A commercial unified filling and post filling simulation was used to predict fiber orientation and mechanical properties of plaques molded from a 30% by weight glass-filled poly-butylene terephthalate (GE Plastics Valox 420) and the predictions are compared to experimental measurements.
