Fiber orientation for Warped moldflow model (3D) to structural simulation

Dear all,

 

Based on my understanding, the fiber orientation from Moldflow is for an unwarped (given CAD) model.

 Is it possible to extract fiber orientation for the warped moldflow model?

 

 

The objective is to take the fiber orientation of the warped model to perform further structural simulation.

 

Thanks in advance for the reply.

 

Regards

PK VEL

Dear all,

 

As I have not heard from other users, I have submitted this idea to consider for the future version of moldflow.

I request the other moldflow users to vote this idea if you think this option may be useful in future.

 

Regards,

Of course it is possible. The mesh does not change and for each element the fiber orientation is still there in the warped (deformed) mesh. I don't see any problems here. With what we have in Moldflow you could certainly perform a coupled structural simulation with the deformed mesh.

Hi @pk_vel,

Thanks for posting on this forum!

I agree with @tianyi.li that we might have here simply a visualization issue. As I understand, you are overlapping the undeformed plot with the fiber distribution with a deformed warp plot, which of course are not matching perfectly.

I also agree with @tianyi.li that if you export the simulation results with the currently available tools, you might be able to run a structural analysis where the fiber orientation distribution is taken into account.

I hope it helps!

Cheers,

Javier
