CHE 676 Polymer Mold and Die Design

Principal manufacturing methods utilizing molds and dies; mold and die design characteristics dictated by functional requirements; interaction between molds/dies and processing machinery; mathematical models of forming processes including: flow through dies and into molds, solidification, heat transfer and reaction (in reactive processing); end-product properties (morphology, bulk properties, tolerances, appearance) and operating conditions in alternative manufacturing methods; materials and manufacturing methods for molds and dies; case studies.
