This blog is an intro to viscoelastic equations which are key for future blogs. Some of the equations are used to create viscoelastic models.
Four Regions of Viscoelastic behavior
This blog explains the four regions of polymer state under temperature or loading and how modulus changes in each state. Please watch other viscoelastic blog before watching this blog for better understanding.
As a part of mold base, this blog covers the locating ring. Purpose and various designs are covered in this blog.
Basic Mold Types
This blog introduces basic mold types and classification of molds. This is a continuation of the mold design intro series. Hope you enjoy this blog!

In this blog, you will learn how to compare materials on strength and stiffness of the material and the calculation on a beam example.
Moldflow Design Principles – Part 2
This blog is a continuation of Part1 blog which I did recently. Please watch that before this video blog for better understanding.
Moldflow Design Principles – Part 1
Published by Moldflow in 1990’s on how to position gates in a part with certain known principles. This blog takes you through design principles step by step.
Part Weight & Cost Calculation – Imperial Units (USA)
This blog is same as the previous blog, only change is the units. You will learn how to calculate part weight in imperial units and cost calculation in USA.
Part Weight & Cost calculation – Metric Units (outside usa)
In this blog, you can see an example of part weight and cost calculation, also by hand calculation. A simple example for basic understanding is chosen.
