Design of calibrator in profile extrusion process
 
Hi, I have simulated the polymer flow and heat transfer simulation through extrusion die and free-surface flow after the die using Fluent's Polyflow and designed a die. I would like to extend simulation downstream within sizing tool (or calibrator) and the cooling and thermomechanical deformations in the cooling tank, which contribute to the final shape of the extrudate product. I am searching for an appropriate software where I can simulate the above process and design a calibrator. Can I simulate this using CFX or related products. I would be very thankful if someone can help me. Thanks in advance. Srinivasa Rao Vaddiraju
