ANSYS POLYFLOW - Extrusion 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®.
This course is a comprehensive introduction to the numerical simulation of extrusion and die design using ANSYS® POLYFLOW®. It is essentially devoted to 2-D and 3-D free surface flow problems of non-Newtonian inelastic fluids.
We elaborate on the concept of free surface in extrusion and the associated numerical tools: initial conditions, direction of motion, corner strategy (for 3-D free surfaces), fixed and moving domains, re-meshing algorithms, direct and inverse extrusion problems.
We show how to define a simple problem at the outset and how to handle non-linearities through appropriate evolution parameters. Several 2-D and 3-D applications of technical importance are discussed while sample problems are solved by the trainees at a workstation.
