Paper Title:
Simulation of Molding Flow of Sheet Molding Compound in Complicated Dies
  Abstract

Based on generalized Hele-Shaw(GHS) model, numerical simulation of compression-molding flow of sheet molding compound (SMC) in complicated dies is realized by control volume/finite element method (CV/FEM). Finite element computing and post analysis programs have been written. The flow fronts of SMC charge during compression molding are tracked, and the time needed of mold filling in complicated dies is predicted. The results of simulation are helpful for the placement of SMC charge, the design of mold and the optimization of technological parameters.
