Create a New Material File in Moldex3D R15

Material Wizard provides two options to create a new material file, Custom: If you have property data of a new material, you can select Custom to add the property data into Material Wizard. From Exterior Sources: If you find a new material in other sources, you can convert other format of the material file into Moldex3D format of the material file. full post

The Role of Material Data in the Simulation of Injection Molded Parts

The modeling of material behavior for injection molded plastics is a vital step for good simulation results. We detail the types of material data needed by various injection-molding simulation programs, factors that can affect simulation quality including test techniques and process variables such as moisture content. The case of fiber filled plastics is covered along with the extension to structural analysis applications. full post

From Manufacturing to Design Validation

[We] introduced the topic of injection molding process simulation and the influence of the manufacturing process on structural analysis. The strength and stiffness of a part can be inaccurately represented if the manufacturing process conditions are not properly considered. This results in a different calculation of system natural frequencies or improper estimation of the energy absorbing characteristics. We continue on this topic, extending the scope to advanced technologies available in the Altair Partner Alliance (APA) to help solve the problem of proper design validation with fiber reinforced plastics. full post

Software for Creating and Managing Material Specifications 

Material specifications define properties for incoming materials to meet required criteria. We present software that manages creation of material specifications, input of properties and material composition; and provides a way to evaluate qualification per specification. While it is designed for OEM/Tier n environments, it is also applicable for materials suppliers. full post

Comments on the Testing and Management of Plastics Material Data 

Plastics appeared as design materials of choice about 30 years ago. They brought with them huge design challenges because their multi-variable, non-linear nature was not well understood by engineers trained to work in a linear elastic world. We outline a 20 year journey accompanying our customers in their efforts to understand and simulate these remarkable materials to produce the highly reliable plastic products of today. We discuss challenges related to processes such as injection molding vs. blow-molding; coping with filled plastics; the difficulties of modeling polymers for crash applications. We include our latest findings related to volumetric yield in polymers and its relationship to failure. We describe the material database technology that was created to store this kind of multi-variable data and the analytical tools created to help the CAE engineer understand and use plastics material data. full post

Understanding the Role of Material Properties in Simulations, Part 2

We discuss material properties in injection molding simulations, including the definition of property requirements, identification of evaluation parameters, and the role of material properties at each stage of the injection molding process, from mold filling through cooling, post-filling and shrinkage/warpage considerations. full post
