|Polymer and Polymer Composites Processing Research
Nearly one third of the useful objects in the world are manufactured from polymers and polymer blends and composites. The deformation science of these materials when they flow to form useful objects is very important. Our research focuses on understanding the transport processes in composite materials and rheologically complex fluids.
- Rheology of Long Fiber Composite Materials
- Flow of Short Fiber Suspensions
- Manufacturing with Resin Transfer Molding
Modeling and Simulations:
Flow simulation of cone shaped mold with respect to draping effects.
