SIMPOE Thermoplastic Filling Analysis

Test ID  

Properties needed to perform a mold filling analysis are generated. These include: Viscosity vs. shear rate at 3 temperatures (two in the processing range and one below), specific heat and transition analysis, thermal conductivity, and specific volume vs. temperature and pressure (PVT). Viscosity data is fit to a Cross material model and PVT data is fit to the modified Tait model for easy implementation into the software.    
Included Tests  
# Test Id Test Name
1x D-020 PVT (Isothermal Heating)
3x R-011 Capillary Rheology (1 Temperature)
1x T-015 Specific Heat
1x T-101 Thermal Conductivity (Melt)
To simulate the post molding behavior (shrinkage/warpage), please see the SIMPOE thermoplastic filling with warpage TestPak [G-244].  
Data and models can be accessed directly from within Simpoe by using your Matereality CAE Modeler ShowMe  
2 - kg of pellets [details]
1 - parts, any shape [details]
The filling properties allow the user to simulate the flow of polymer through runners and fill the mold cavity and pressurize the cavity.
