MoldSim NL inside Ansys in Detail
MoldSim NL inside Ansys – the practical link between injection molding simulation and structural mechanics
The production of short fiber-reinforced plastic components can be effectively represented by injection molding simulations. Using strength calculation, the structural mechanical behavior of this component is revealed. With MoldSim NL inside Ansys, synthesis of both simulation worlds is possible - for optimal product quality.
- Elastoplastic material description of short fiber-reinforced thermoplastics
- Curve-fitting of test data for determining hardening parameters with optiSLang algorithms from our partner Dynardo
- Performance gains through the support of Ansys Distributed Memory Parallelization (DMP)
- Reading specific results: Stresses in and transverse to the fiber direction; failure indicator according to Tsai-Hill
HIGHLIGHTS - MoldSim NL inside Ansys
- The alignment of the fiber orientation data (FOT) or Initial Stresses (IST) from the injection molding simulation to the desired component in Ansys Mechanical can now also be performed using a local co-ordinate system.
- Simplification of licensing through central license management.
