High Accuracy Cooling

The Cool analysis module is enhanced.

A solution option is available for the Cool analysis module which allows simulation of cooling circuits with multiple inlets and outlets. All side passages without inlets or outlets are considered dead ends. Select Coolant Flow Field under Boundary Conditions.

After completion of the Coolant Flow Field analysis, new result plot options are available for coolant velocity and coolant pressure.

Velocity of coolant system
Mold Temperature at end of cooling

The mold open time is included in the Cool solver calculations. This accounts for the effect of coolant circulating while the mold is open. The mold open time is listed under the Cycle Time summary in the report.
