Abstract: A two-phase model is presented for simulating the post-filling stage of injection molding of amorphous and semicrystalline materials. A finite-element scheme with quadratic shape function for the pressure is proposed. The melt is considered in terms of Hele-Shaw flow for a non-Newtonian fluid using a modified-Cross model with either an Arrhenius-type or WLF-type functional form to describe the viscosity under nonisothemal conditions: the compressible behavior of the polymer is assumed to obey either a double-…
