Accurate FEA of Engineering Plastics - Importance of Fiber Orientation

This presentation was given by James Kosloski at CAE Associates' Accurate FEA of Engineering Plastics Seminar, held on October 14, 2014 in Tarrytown, NY.

  • When injection molding glass filled material, the fiber orientation will be a function of the molding process.
  • An injection molding code must be used to calculate the local fiber orientation.
  • The location of the mold gate will also effect the overall fiber orientation.
