Engineering Simulation in the Design and Manufacture of Plastic Parts

The popularity of using non-metallic materials such as engineering plastics in engineering applications is increasing. This presents many new challengers for simulation, particularly related to material characterisation.

The seminar focussed on how simulation can be used throughout the complete design process, including predicting the material properties, simulating the manufacturing process and assessing the structural integrity.

The event provided an opportunity for delegates to learn how the many modelling issues related to this topic have been addressed. It also provided a rare opportunity to network with peers who are faced with similar challenges.
