Strength Prediction of Short Fibre Reinforced Polymers
This contribution is focused on the strength prediction of injection moulded short fibre reinforced polymer parts. Two strategies for the application of different strength prediction criteria are developed and applied. It is shown, that the selection of a certain criteria has a significant influence on the simulation results, the number of material tests necessary for calibration and the engineering expenses. To be able to verify the computed results and to evaluate the pros and cons of the described strategies and applied criteria, the results are compared to experimental tests.

The Journal of Plastics Technology is a peer reviewed internet periodical published under the auspices of the Scientific Alliance of Polymer Technology (WAK)
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
The Journal of Plastics Technology is indexed in SCOPUS, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
