C-MOLD Filling/Cooling + Juncture Loss (Bagley correction)


Test ID  
G-011

   
Description  
Properties needed to perform a C-MOLD injection mold-filling simulation, incorporating pressure drop in runner and gates, are generated. These include Bagley corrected viscosity vs. shear rate at three temperatures (two in the processing range and one below); thermal properties. The entrance pressure loss (Bagley correction) is applied to the viscosity data; the residual contraction pressure loss is modeled as a function of shear stress. Viscosity data are fit to Cross-WLF model.    
Included Tests

Options  
More advanced TestPaks are available to simulate packing, shrinkage and warpage.  
Data  
A .fit file and accompanying material property data are provided. You can also create udb files as well as exports for other injection molding CAE using your Matereality CAE Modeler software.  
Samples  
1 - kg of pellets [details]
   
Application  
In addition to all the capabilities of the C-Mold Filling/Cooling program, this TestPak enables the juncture loss calculation which permits the simulation of pressure drop across runners and gates due to extensional effects.
