Evaluating Shear Induced Melt Variations and MeltFlipper® using Autodesk® Moldflow®

by John Beaumont, Beaumont Technologies, Inc.

Abstract: This presentation revisits and updates an earlier cooperative study (2012) conducted by Beaumont Technologies and Autodesk Moldflow, to evaluate how well Moldflow’s programs predict shear induced melt variations developed in a runner and their influence on both multi and single cavity molds. Numerous modeling techniques, meshes and solver variants are evaluated.  The presentation also shows the progress that has been made as a result of this earlier study.
