Live translation is available during all speeches. Listen to international speakers like:



Thomas Jeltsch, EMS Grivory (CH)
Rheological Optimization of Weld Lines


Using short glass fiber material weld lines can cause visual defects or mechanical weakness.
Thomas Jeltsch demonstrates how the stability of weld lines and the strength of the component can be influenced by the injection molding process.


David A. Okonski, General Motors Company (USA)
Material Properties versus Simulation Accuracy


The usefulness of thermoplastic injection-molding simulation is influenced by many simulation inputs – such as the modeling of part geometry, mesh type and density, mathematical solution, process settings, and plastic material properties both as a melt and as a solid.
The focus of this presentation is the influence of material properties data on simulation precision and accuracy. Several case studies will be utilized to demonstrate the sensitivity of simulation results to key parameters in the material properties data file – the .udb input file.


Dr. Christian Gaier, Magna Powertrain (A)
Fatigue Life Prediction of Short Fiber Reinforced Plastic Components


Because of the increasing importance of lightweight constructions the usage of short fiber reinforced plastics seems to be self-evident because their high specific strength.
For fatigue life prediction a simulation process was established, which takes into account the fiber orientation and distribution as a result from a molding simulation. The fatigue behavior of short fiber reinforced plastics is rather complex and a lot of tests on specimens are necessary to quantify influences as fiber orientation and distribution, mean stress influence, etc. Hypotheses have been derived from these tests and been implemented into the standard fatigue software tool FEMFAT and verified so far with component tests.


Dr. Fin Caton-Rose, University of Bradford (GB)
Review of Short Glass Fibre Orientation Prediction Models for Injection Moulding


Within this paper we will present a review of the commercially available short glass fibre orientation models in both 2 1/2 D and 3 D analyses. Optimum coefficients for the Folgar-Tucker (FT), modified Folgar Tucker (mFT) and Reduced Strain Closure (RSC) models will be considered along side experimentally determined fibre orientation averages.


Hot Runners
