Polymer Crystallization

Summary

Using advanced molecular simulation techniques the project seeks to establish the relationship between molecular structure and complex interplay of thermodynamic and processing parameters on the rheology of the melt and crystallization.

Supervisor(s)

Dr Ahmad Jabbarzadeh

Research Location

Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering

Program Type

N/A

Synopsis

It is well known in the polymer industry that the crystallization of polymer melts is dependant on many thermodynamic and processing factors such as cooling rate, temperature, and shear rate. The structure and shape of the individual molecules also significantly affect the results. The structure of the crystallized material and as a result its mechanical properties greatly depend on these factors.
