Abstract

During injection molding of polymeric materials, flow instabilities may occur, influencing production speeds and product quality. The project goal is to simulate the fountain flow instability to gain more insight in the relevant physics. We will compare the characteristic critical Weissenberg number, a measure of elasticity in the flow, with previous work.
