Within the broad field of polymer processing, our research group works in the general areas of experimentation and process monitoring, as well as modeling and simulation. Our research covers several topics and activities within these two general thrust areas:
- Experimentation and Rheology
- Injection molding behavior of thermotropic polymers
- Processing rheology of thermotropic and thermoplastic polymers
- Application of IR pyrometers during polymer processing operations
- Processability and properties of cellulose fiber reinforced thermoplastics
- Measurement of rheological properties of plastics
- Relating rheology to plastics processability
Modeling and Simulation
- Compression mold filling
- Shrinkage and warpage in fiber-reinforced thermoset composite parts
- Thermally-induced warpage in molded thermoplastic parts
- Reaction injection molding
- Blow molding
- Plastic pipe solidification
- Boundary element simulation of extrusion, mixing and other polymer flows
