Abstract

We introduce a new multidimensional finite element approach to study heat transfer in rotational molding. The finite element approach employs axisymmetric Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian techniques to model the moving plastic interface. Preliminary results indicate that significant variations in mold temperatures occur during rotational molding of realistic parts which result in highly nonuniform rates of plastic deposition.
