A boundary element model is used for simulating the fountain flow in injection molding. The particle orientation caused by the fountain effect is illustrated with a tracer‐in‐domain technique which is similar to the Marker‐And‐Cell technique. The efficiency and accuracy of the boundary element model are shown through this simulation, in determination of the free surface shape, and the particle orientation patterns. Clear and correct information is obtained to interpret the complicated effects upon fo…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
