For fiber reinforced parts the consideration of anisotropic material behavior is required to receive reliable results. In the scope of this fact a procedure is described how to consider these effects in terms of process-structure interaction and how to achieve possible benefits such as weight reduction and shorter development cycles shown for examples of the industry . The developed procedures show how to consider the anisotropic mechanical behavior of injection molded short-fiber-reinforced plastics parts in FE analysis. It is shown how the existing information, which is provided by injection molding simulation software, can be processed and transferred into mechanical simulation models. The procedure is outlined with practical applications.
