Description

Description

During this class we will address major issues related to 3D shrinkage and warpage analysis in injection molding. We would like to start with an introduction of mechanism of shrinkage and warpage. We will discuss the generic shrinkage model and its limitations. We will also present 3D thermo-viscous-elastic residual stress model and thermo-viscoelastic residual stress model. Finally, we will explore some advanced topics, such as corner-effect, in-mold shrinkage, stress relaxation, buckling, and large deflection analysis.
