SYLLABUS Mold Design MPE-4700:427 Spring Semester 2013 Mondays & Wednesdays: 5:10 6:25pm Room: Schrank S 112 Labs: ASEC 123/124/125 Instructor: Edwin C. Goyzueta E-Mail: Text: Polymer Processing Fundamentals, Tim Osswald (ISBN-13:9781569902622) Course Description: This course will review basic knowledge for designing molds with an emphasis on the injection molding process. It will cover mold design issues along with mold filling simulation with computer-aided mold design tools. Students with polymer rheology and processing knowledge will develop more advanced skills and knowledge for application to an important, commercial significant area for polymers. Introduction to polymer processing techniques and mechanical behavior of polymers will also be reviewed. Objectives: The objective of this course is to provide the engineering student with a basic understanding of the principles of polymer processing as well as the mechanical / rheological behavior of polymers. Quiz 1 thru 3 = 30% Mold Flow Labs = 25% Polymer Processing Labs = 25% Final Exam = 20%

3359-41-02 DEFINITION OF STUDENT MISCONDUCT. The University of Akron defines student misconduct as behavior on property owned, leased or operated by the university that violates codified or explicitly stated university rules and regulations. Minor sanctions may be assessed informally under prescribed procedures (see paragraph (A)(1) of this rule), university records, but the types of misconduct described below may result in the sanctions of formal disciplinary probation, suspension, or dismissal. Student misconduct includes: (A) Plagiarism, cheating, or other forms of academic dishonesty. 1) Working together by solving problems is an effective way to learn. However, copying solutions from one another or out of the solutions manual is not acceptable and may constitute academic dishonesty. Copying solutions from one another or from the solutions manual may result in a one letter grade reduction for the course. 2) Any form of plagiarism is unacceptable and may result in disciplinary action. 3) All students are expected to behave in a respectful and appropriate manner in class. Students acting in a manner that is disruptive or impedes learning may be asked to leave the class. Students that are asked to leave will be required to meet with the instructor and may be referred to Student Judicial Affairs for review and possible disciplinary action. 4) The use of cell phones, pagers and other electronic devices is prohibited during class. Cell phones need to be placed into silent / vibrate mode during class or turned off. Laptops are permitted for the purpose of taking notes, software training and performing in-class assignments only and are not to be used for e-mail, instant messaging or other non-class activities. 5) Examinations are conducted as means to assess student learning and understanding of the course material. During examinations, students are expected to have no communication with others in or outside of class. Such communication or the copying of another students exam solutions will result in a grade of F for the examination and an F for the final course grade.
