  1. 1. The Environmental Impact of an Automotive Plastic Component : A lifecycle approach of a deco panel scenario analysis of two different plastics

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Paula Ackerstierna; [2019]
    Keywords : LCA; car; instrument panel;

    Abstract : The transport sector is a major end-user of energy. As consumers are becoming aware and conscious of their environmental footprint making the enviromental footprint of automobile components one of the requirements in new product design development. The purpose of the study is to identify environmental impacts of a plastic panel. READ MORE

  2. 2. Determination and implementation of polymer parameters into simulations of the twin-screw extrusion process.

    University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Maskinteknik

    Author : Marcus Strandberg; [2015]
    Keywords : Polymers; melt flow rate; density; heat; viscosity; standard; measurements; machine; extrusion; simulation; properties.;

    Abstract : This thesis was conducted in cooperation with a Swedish company that develops and manufactures plastic compounds. An increasing need for identifying material properties is seen within the industry in order to predict the outcome of the extrusion process by using simulations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anisotropic material modeling and impact simulation of a brush cutter casing made of a short fiber reinforced plastic

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/HållfasthetsläraLinköpings universitet/Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Oskar Norman; [2014]
    Keywords : anisotropic material modeling; short fiber reinforced plastics; impact simulation; Digimat; LS-DYNA;

    Abstract : A popular way to reduce weight in industrial products without compromising the strength or stiffness is to replace components made of metal by plastics that have been reinforced by glass fibers. When fibers are introduced in a plastic, the resulting composite usually becomes anisotropic, which makes it much more complex to work with in simulation software. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Checklist for Plastic Product Design: Preventing Pitfalls in a Design Process and Premature Failures of Plastic Products

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Johanna Kaartinen; [2014]
    Keywords : Plastics; polymers; plastic design; injection molding; product failure;

    Abstract : Designing an injection molded plastic part requires optimizing the part with respect to various stakeholders’ needs throughout its life cycle. The conditions in which a product is operating in service are often inadequately understood or specified, resulting in wrong material selection, which in turn leads to failure when the product is used.

  5. 5. Redesign of a Shock Absorber Piston Using Sintering

    University essay from Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Maskinteknik; Högskolan i Jönköping/JTH, Maskinteknik

    Author : Ömer Kus; Hamed Mojtabavi; [2012]
    Keywords : P M Powder Metallurgy ; Sintering; Conventional Press and Sintering; Metal Injection Molding; shock absorber piston; design; Finite Element Analysis.;

    Abstract : The main objective of this report is to re-design of a product by substituting for another manufacturing process in order to get a cheaper product with the same function and quality. The current shock absorber piston is manufactured by the machining process at Öhlins Racing AB Company. READ MORE
