Abstract: Abstract Residual density distributions are determined in injection‐molded poly(methyl‐methacrylate) (PMMA) with the aid of a quantitative Schlieren optical technique. The gapwise distributions typically show a maximum beneath the surface. The height of the maximum as well as the level in the core vary with distance from the gate of the mold. The density distributions and the influence of the molding parameters are explained by the pressure course measured in the cavity and the process of vitrification of the…
