※ The James L. White Innovation Award
Dr. Rong-Yeu CHANG
CoreTech System (Moldex3D) Co. Ltd, Taiwan

Title: Next Generation Simulation Technology and Polymeric Theories for Injection Molding Process with Industrial Complexity
Dr. Chang started academic research and industrial service in the plastics industry since 1983. He found there were a lot of plastic processing issues could be modeled with polymer physics and mathematical models, and solved comprehensively by computer simulation. Therefore, he devoted himself into developing a complete solution for injection molding simulation, and founded CoreTech System Co., Ltd. in 1995.The company has now grown to be the world's largest independent CAE software provider for injection molding, with more than 2,500 companies using its flagship product Moldex3D around the world. After retiring from Tsing Hua University, he is appointed as the CEO of the company.

Dr. Chang's research interests are not limited to numerical simulation, but also material modeling and molecular dynamics. He co-developed a new predictive model for fiber orientation simulation. This innovative model takes only 3 material parameters and can be used successfully for both short and long fibers. Except for injection molding, Dr. Chang also published numerous papers on molecular dynamics, and applied the technology to successfully simulation nano-jet and nano-imprinting problems and predicting fundamental thermodynamic and rheological properties of polymers.

Dr. Chang's major academic accomplishments include:
Developed and completed microscopic simulation core technology for molecular dynamic simulation.
Completed various fundamental 3D injection molding simulation core technology: from control volume method for injection molding simulation to predictive models of fiber orientation prediction.
Completed a series interface technologies for CAD and CAE in order to offer better solution to consider process induced material variation for virtual life cycle management of injection molding product development.
Completed various advanced CAE technology for injection molding simulation: from various variotherm simulation technology to powder injection molding simulation technology

To sum up, the most important contribution of Dr. Chang is commercialization of their academic researches into CAE software for various industrial sector applications, and continuously enhances the researches and application to strengthen and broaden the field.
