Injection molded parts require some additional consideration when it comes to structural simulation. Fiber orientations and weld line locations will affect the critical locations of the structure and the accuracy of the results. By accounting for these, Helius allows for a level of accuracy in the modeling of as-manufactured injection molded parts that is all but impossible to achieve with standard finite element analysis. It also allows the analyst to model post-failure behavior of the injection molded structure to capture stress redistributions. Agenda will consist of the following:

  1. Overview and purpose of Helius PFA
  2. Material characterizations needed for Helius PFA
  3. Workflow from Moldflow Insight to Helius PFA to Nastran In-CAD
  4. Tips and tricks for successful Helius PFA modeling.
