Description

Description

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.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Users of Autodesk Simulation Moldflow and product designers who are interested in fiber-reinforced polymer composites and microscale components
