FLOW-3D ThermoSET - Simulating Crosslinked Polymers
Learn about modeling crosslinked polymers using FLOW-3D ThermoSET, the first CAE software that simulates complex thermosetting resins. Crosslinked polymers can be used in the encapsulation of sub-millimeter electronics, bonding of generator coils, and provide a protective environment to chip components. Thermosetting resins exhibit behaviors such as irreversible molecular bonding, viscosity dependent on the reaction rate, degree of cure, and heat generated from the chemical reaction.
