Abstract

Fiber filled injection-molded parts contain complex fiber orientation patterns. This fiber orientation state affects material properties including elastic modulus and strength, and the calculation of shrinkage and warpage. This paper discusses an improvement to the fiber orientation approximation presently implemented in C-MOLD. Comparisons are made with experimental data for fiber orientation and tensile modulus.
