Compressible Material Analysis

Question asked by 1-9VBDZ on Jan 15, 2009

My company is getting into some areas of extrusion that might be able to use fluid flow analysis. Before I start looking at doing any cost justification, I kind of have to get an idea of what material/fluids that SW has in their database, and what limitations there might be. For instance, if we compound a special rubber product that also contains a set amount of calcium carbonate, is this something I could either find a similar material of or readily create without having to have a lab get involved indetermining physical properties? I'm looking to do extrusion shape analysis and the rubber makes it somewhat involved with the compressibility and different temperatures. Any help/comments would be appreciated.
