Abstract

A detailed theoretical heat transfer model for the entire rotational molding process (including heating and cooling stages) has been developed, and the key parameters affecting the process cycle time have been identified. This theoretical model has been employed to generate numerical results which are in very good agreement with experimental data available in the literature. In addition, the effect of part shrinkage on the process cycle time has been studied.
