Optimization strategy for the design of ribbed plastic components

Optimization strategy for the design of ribbed plastic components

The engineer is supported for the design of ribbed plastic components by basic guidelines concerning the shape and the position of the ribs. Thus, the experience and intuition of the individual engineer plays an important role. For this reason, a component with an optimal rib structure cannot be guaranteed. In this publication a new strategy is presented as assistance for the design of ribbed plastic components. The guidance of the design of rib structures in injection molded plastic parts by tensor visualization will result in an optimized rib structure which leads to stiffer parts when identical material is used. FE-simulations as well as experimental tests validate the optimization potential of tensor visualization for the design of ribbed plastic components.
