Abstract: Internal stresses in injection-molded parts are the result of thermal, flow, and pressure histories. Internal stresses can be roughly divided into thermal and flow-induced stresses. In this paper, a modified layer-removal method is presented to determine thermal stress distributions in injection-molded flat plates. With this method, the curvature of a rectangular specimen is determined after the removal of a layer from one surface. This curvature is converted into a stress via a mathematical relation, origina…
