In-depth study of injection molding design and filling processes. An overview of polymer rheology flow and thermal properties introduces the concepts associated with filling an injection mold with plastic materials. Significant time is devoted to application of mold filling simulation software, primarily Moldflow , which is used to perform detailed flow analyses and design. (Previously offered as PPT347; students with credit for PPT347 are not eligible to take this course.) Spring Only.
