Numerical Simulation of Temperature Field in Barrel of Injection Molding Machine during Induction Heating Process Based on ANSYS Software
A finite element model of temperature field coupled with electromagnetic field has been established based on induction heating theory including Maxwell’s equations, thermal conductivity differential equation and magnetic vector potential to simulate the induction heating process of barrel of injection molding machine by universal ANSYS software, and to obtain temperature field of the barrel related to time variation. The coupled thermal and electromagnetic field problem taking account of nonlinear materials characteristics related to temperature was discussed. The induction heating process of barrel was analyzed, and the temperature distribution and its variation with time were obtained.
