Warp Analysis in injection molding
Introducing running a Warp Analysis using the thermal strain results from a Polymer Flow-Injection Analysis ultimately to evaluate displacement and stress in the model structure.
1. Polymer Flow-Injection Analysis
APolymer Flow-Injection Analysis (hereafter called Flow Analysis) is operated in ANSYS Workbench.
PlanetsX provides extensive functionality of Workbench, such as mesh generation and CAD interface. Configuration items window provides for easy Flow Analysis settings.

2. Structure-linked Analysis
The shrinkage determined by 1. Polymer Flow-Injection Analysis, will be used as the initial strain of Structural Analysis. Setup of Structure-linked Analysis with Flow Analysis is accomplished easily with drag and drop.
3. Analysis result
Repeat the case study of molding conditions then find optimal conditions resulting in less warpage. At post-processing, extensive display features offered by Workbench, including contour graphics and animations.
