Injection molding simulation : Taking into account the process history to predict the anisotropy in the end-use properties

Abstract : This work's context is an industrial project aiming the accurate modeling of the injection molding process. 3D numerical simulation of the different stages is considered: during processing, anisotropy of the stress state build up affects its mechanical, optical or dimensional properties, and induces warpage once the part is ejected. A first example of injection molding of reinforced thermoplastics will be treated. In this case, we will consider that during the injection step, an orientation will be induced by the flow. Furthermore, the thermoplastic matrix will pass from the liquid to the solid state, and orientation and stresses will remain frozen. Evolution of orientation or extra stress is computed using the Folgar and Tucker equation, with continuous or discontinuous approximations. Results are obtained in a 3D complex industrial part.
