Paper Title:
Study on the Flow Behavior in Thin Cavity during Water-Assisted Injection Molding
  Abstract

A numerical simulation model for the flow behavior of fluids in thin cavity during water assisted injection molding process is built up by adopting general Newtonian fluid model for the filling stage and non-Newtonian and compressible fluid model for the packing stage separately. Finite element/finite difference/control volume methods are adopted for the simulation of melt front, pressure variation at injection location, water thickness fraction and bulk temperature about a plate with trapezoidal cross-section. The simulated melt front location and shape have good agreement with experimental result. In comparison with the simulation results of conventional injection molding, it turns out that water assisted injection molding can obtain parts with low pressure requirement, perfect surface quality and rapid cooling.
