Friction Forces between Sheet Molding Compound Charge and Mold Cavity Surface in Compression Molding

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study, three relevant friction ‎forces: constant friction force, hydrodynamic friction force and coulomb friction force are ‎considered between sheet molding compound (SMC) charge and contact surface of the mold. The power ‎law model is implemented to propose a model for prediction of hydrodynamic friction as the dominant friction of the SMC compression molding. The proposed model ‎is simple and does not need any extra experimental parameters. Finally, a model has been developed to predict the molding pressure under non-isothermal conditions. The obtained results of the model are in a very good agreement with the experimental data.
