Abstract: Abstract 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 …
