Use this result with the Frozen layer percentage, part (bottom) result to determine if the part froze uniformly.
Using this result
Ideally the frozen layer thickness should be the same for both top and bottom surfaces to help achieve uniform cooling.
The amount of the wall thickness which must be frozen before ejection will depend upon the part stiffness, the degree to which the part is resisting ejection (due for example to mold finish or overpacking) and the design and position of the ejector system components.
Note This result is a fraction of the entire element thickness. In the following diagram, the top frozen layer thickness is 0.5 (the bottom frozen layer thickness is 0.2).
Things to look for
- The same frozen layer thickness for the top and bottom surfaces.
- Non-uniform cooling.
Note When using Dual Domain analysis technology, this result will have no meaning for some elements. If an element does not have a matching element on the other side of the part, such as the element shown in red in the diagram above, then this result is meaningless.
