Prediction of shrinkage and warpage in injection moulded components using computational analysis
(Peninsula Technikon, 2003)
Injection moulding is a process by which molten polymer is forced into an empty cavity of the desired shape. At its melting point, polymers undergo a volumetric expansion when heated, and volumetric contraction when ...
Performance evaluation of aluminium alloy 7075 for use in tool design for the plastic industry
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2009)
The objective of this project was to measure the performance of high-strength aluminium alloys as injection mould material compared against conventionally used tool steel.
Singular behaviour of Non-Newtonian fluids
(Peninsula Technikon, 1999)
Since 1996, a team at the Centre for Research in Applied Technology (CRATECH) at Peninsula Technikon, under NRF sponsorship and with industrial co-operation, has been involved in the simulation of Non-Newtonian flow ...
