How to Avoid Oversized Plastic Parts and Wrong Material Choices in the Design Phase

Lightweight design often is all about replacing metal parts with plastics. Simulation tools are useful to avoid oversized parts and verify its physical integrity early in the development process. But to do it right, influences of the manufacturing process and the right material choice are essential. During this webinar, this process will be outlined for an injection molded short-fiber-reinforced plastic part. The effects of weld lines, fiber orientation, temperature and more, on the part's strength cannot be ignored. How such influences are easily considered will be shown in this webinar. Presenter: Sascha Pazour | Engineer, PART Engineering GmbH Featuring Converse and S-Life Plastics by PART Engineering, available through the Altair Partner Alliance.

Design High-Quality Plastic Components Faster Using S-Life Plastics

An Introductory webinar to S-Life Plastics by PART Engineering, available through the Altair Partner Alliance. S-Life-Plastics is an easy-to-use software that conducts a short-term, long-term and fatigue strength assessment based on FEA results for plastic components made out of unreinforced or reinforced thermoplastic materials. In order to conduct a strength assessment S-Life Plastics only needs the local stress tensor, provided by the appropriate result file of the particular FE solver. Additionally the user has to enter some basic information about the material and loading conditions. With that S-Life Plastics provides the resulting static and cyclic utilization ratios as contour plots. For every individual node a comprehensive numerical report of the most important assessment variables can be requested for documentation purposes.
