This is the thesis which explains the progress made in the analysis, simulation and testing of plastics forming. This progress can be applied to injection and compression mould design. Three activities of plastics forming have been investigated, namely filling analysis, cooling analysis and ejecting analysis. The filling section of plastics forming has been analysed and calculated by using MOLDFLOW and FILLCALC V. software. A comparing of high speed compression moulding and injection moulding has been made. The cooling section of plastics forming has been analysed by using MOLDFLOW software and a finite difference computer program. The latter program can be used as a sample program to calculate the feasibility of cooling different materials to required target temperatures under controlled cooling conditions. The application of thermal imaging has been also introduced to determine the actual process temperatures. Thermal imaging can be used as a powerful tool to analyse mould surface temperatures and to verify the mathematical model. A buckling problem for ejecting section has been modelled and calculated by PATRAN/ABAQUS finite element analysis software and tested. These calculations and analysis are applied to the special case but can be use as an example for general analysis and calculation in the ejection section of plastics forming.
