Anisotropic creep prediction of injection-molded short-glass-fiber-reinforced parts
Creep is a time dependent deformation process that happens to materials under a certain stress level. However, with proper design and material choices, thermoplastics can be a suitable material for parts with a creep load. Predictability is key when designing load-bearing components. It reduces development time, enables first-time right design and ensures part performance in service. In this Use Case we evaluated an example of creep of a compression limiter. Focusing on the modelling of creep as function of time of injection molded short-glass-fiber-reinforced plastics (SFRP).
