The objective of this research is to demonstrate the application of a general model of reaction injection molding (RIM) to a complex shaped mold part. Using the fundamental physical and chemical properties of the RIM system, prediction of RIM moldability can be made. The numerical techniques used in this research are presented in a previous paper (1). The rigorous modeling of the transport processes and the dynamics of the filling front for a particular application are described in this work.
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.
