This paper presents the computer-aided simulation of an injection moulding process for thermoplastic materials. The reasons for using computer simulation for the injection moulding process are discussed together with description of the mould-filling and cooling phenomena. The paper also traces the difficulties in transferring the geometry of the part database from a computer-aided design environment to a computer-aided analysis environment by proposing several solutions for plastic products. Details of simulation steps will be examined by using an example part from a finite element mesh representation of mould cavity, runner and cooling channel configurations to evaluation of results from different types of analysis. Commercially available software is used for part modelling and process simulation applications.

Experimental Investigation of Particle-Filler Distribution in Continuous Fiber-Reinforced Composites Produced via Liquid Molding
Aydil, T.; Tanabi, H.; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve (2013-09-11)
This paper presents the preliminary results of an experimental study undertaken to investigate the particle distribution in particle-filled, continuous fiber-reinforced composites produced via two liquid molding methods: Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) and Compression Resin Transfer Molding (CRTM). Composite specimens are produced and characterized to compare composite microstructures (particle filler distributions) obtained in each method, as well as to study the effect of a processing parameter (injection sp...
Numerical and Experimental Investigation into LWIR Transmission Performance of Complementary Silicon Subwavelength Antireflection Grating (SWARG) Structures
Cetin, Ramazan; Akın, Tayfun (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-03-18)
This paper presents a detailed comparison between the long wave infrared (LWIR) transmission performances of binary, silicon based, structurally complementary pillar and groove type antireflective gratings that can be used for wafer level vacuum packaging (WLVP) of uncooled microbolometer detectors. Both pillar and groove type gratings are designed with various topological configurations changing in various period sizes (Delta) from 1.0 mu m to 2.0 mu m, various heights/depths (h) from 0.8 mu m to 1.8 mu m,...
Two-Dimensional Numerical Analysis of Phosphorus Diffused Emitters on Black Silicon Surfaces
TÜRKAY, Deniz; Yerci, Selçuk (2018-07-06)
In this work, we present an analysis on electrical performance of phosphorus diffused emitters on black silicon surfaces through two-dimensional simulations. In particular, we focus on the extraction and analysis of the emitter saturation current density (J(0e)), the sheet resistance (R-sh), spatial collection efficiency profile and relatedly J(sc) of a solar cell. Using process simulations, we form emitters on periodic triangular structures with various aspect ratios (R) and emitter profiles. We show that ...
Piezoelectric torsional actuation in d(36) shear-mode PMN-PT single crystals
Berik, Pelin; Chang, Wei-Yi; Jiang, Xiaoning;( Abstracts: This paper presents an experimental and numerical characterization of a piezoelectric d(36) shear-based torsion actuator made of xPb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O-3-(1-x)PbTiO3 (PMN-PT) single crystals embedded between Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) layers. The generated rate of twist value of the piezoelectric d(36)-mode PMN-PT single crystal composite torsion actuator was obtained using a laser vibrometer from the maximum detected transverse deflection measurement. The quasi-static torsion actuation experiments were conducted on the piezoelectric d(36) torsion actuator by applying different AC voltages at 1 Hz. The experimental benchmark was further modelled by Finite Element (FE) code ABAQUS (R) using three dimensional (3D) piezoelectric finite elements. The experimental results and Finite Element computations showed good agreement. Findings reveal that more rate of twist is produced by PMN-PT single crystals in comparison to piezoceramic alternatives. This piezoelectric PMN-PT d(36)-mode composite torsion actuator can be effectively used in torsional deformation control.; 2018-03-08)
