Abstract

The large multidisciplinary group of eight universities and seven industrial partners has started a new five year project called Microscale Polymer Processing 2 (μPP2). The overall goal of the project is to provide a software-embedded, validated set of molecular-based tools for the design of advanced polymers and processes. The flow properties of polymer melts depends strongly upon the length and branching structure of the molecules. The project is heading towards the evaluation of the behavior of blends of linear and branched polymers and synthesizing model materials which have controlled branch-on-branch structures. The development of a flexible application containing all the molecular theories developed within the project to enhance the exchange of data and accelerate the fit of theories to experimental measurements is an early success of the project. A flow simulation model, flowSolve, is also in development to take full advantage of the theory developed within the project.
