Simulate "Longer"

A New Calculation Model Allows the Prediction of Strength of Long Fiber-Reinforced Thermoplastics by means of Integrative Simulation

Simulate "Longer"

While the dimensioning of short fiber-reinforced thermoplastics is now established as state of the art, the dimensioning of their long fiber-reinforced counterparts (LFT) is an unresolved issue for developers and designers. First answers are provided by an integrative simulation method now developed at the Institute of Plastics Processing for predicting the strength of injection-molded LFT parts.
