POLYFLOW is a finite-element based CFD package for the analysis of thermoforming. Using the shell approximation, it allows the user to simulate a multilayer non-isothermal thermoforming application. Integral viscoelastic model of the KBK-Z family including damping functions are used to properly model the polymer behavior. Slipping phenomena between the mold and the polymer can be taken into account.
