ANSYS POLYFLOW - Blow Molding Course Offering
The length of the course is one day.
Training is from 9:00am to 5:30pm.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
The course assumes you have previous experience of using ANSYS® POLYFLOW®.
The purpose of this session is to introduce ANSYS® POLYFLOW®'s blow molding module. Models and numerical tools will be presented. Several flow models are available: 2-D and 3-D models with calculation through the thickness and thin shell elements as well. Their advantages and limitations will be discussed. Further, the most important numerical tools will be shown: (i) the remeshing techniques with their usage, and (ii) the contact algorithm with its geometric consequences.
The theoretical presentation is followed by suggested exercises solved on the computer, and which show the various capabilities of these software developments. During the exercises, important features such as parison extrusion, pinch-off, inflation and cooling may be investigated. Numerical results will be analysed and commented on.
