An experimental program has been carried out on a reciprocating screw injection molding machine in order to establish the validity of a proposed mathematical model for the filling stage of injection molding. A cavity of complex shape with an insert and variable thickness was constructed and used in these experiments. Good agreement between predicted (through computer simulation) and observed (through short‐shot experiments and transducer response) results is obtained for free surface shapes and free …
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.
