The current trend in the industry is to produce thin, light weight, and environmental products. In this project, flat or shallow thin-walled parts were designed and moulded lignocellulosic polymer composites (PP + 50 wt% wood) to visualize the processability via moulding simulation. This studied focused on the filling, shear stress at wall, and in-cavity residual stresses behaviors. The shallow thin-walled part is preferable in moulding PP + 50 wt% wood due to economically in processing, low shear stress distribution and low residual stresses than the flat thin-walled part.
