Fundamentals of CAE 

This article will introduce the fundamentals of CAE and explain how CAE analysis supports product design through injection molding analysis and structural analysis.

Part 9: Orientation in fiber-reinforced plastic

Injection molding analysis can predict the orientation of fiber reinforcement (fibrous filler) in injection molding. This article explains what fiber reinforcement orientation is in injection molding and the importance of understanding the orientation.

Part 7: Prediction of molding defects

Injection molding analysis is a valuable tool for predicting molding defects at the design stage and taking countermeasures in advance. In this part, we will introduce various types of molding defects and analysis evaluation items that can be utilized for proactive countermeasures.

Part 4: What is injection molding?

From the 4th to the 9th, we will sequentially introduce the injection molding simulation from the material data to be used to the specific application contents such as molding defect countermeasures. In this article, we will focus on injection molding.

Part 3: Introduction to CAE software

The purpose and application of each analysis field will be explained, and typical software and software used at Asahi Kasei will be introduced.

Part 2: Key points of plastic CAE

We will explain the differences in the material properties of plastics and metals in an easy-to-understand manner, and introduce the points to be considered in CAE analysis of plastics.
