The production of polymeric and plastic parts is a challenging industrial process due to the complex chemistry and fluid physics involved. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation is an effective, efficient tool that can support the polymer/plastics industries in their ongoing drive to increase their competitiveness in today's market by optimizing the process, minimizing the required energy and raw materials.
The extrusion process is one of the most important production methods for producing ceramic, glass and polymeric profiles. Dies and fluid properties vary in structure and complexity to produce desired products. In this webinar we will demonstrate how the finite element (FE) based viscous flow solver in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ can simulate and optimize this challenging and often costly process.
