Default plastic flows
Posts: n/a

Can starcd simulate platic (polymer) flows? I guess they are non-newtonian. It is possible to simulate non-newtonian flows but I want to know the viscosity limits (lower) up to which star simulates correctly. Take for example melting of tar while flowing.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, with the the use of subroutines STAR-CD can do it but the effort and calculation time is much higher in comparison to the special molding software like Moldfolw,Sigmasoft,Cadmold,etc..

So don't waste your time

best regards

if you already have a STAR license then you might want to look into trying Comet for this type of problem.
