SPE Seminar: David Kazmer on Materials Modeling 12/3


Prof. David Kazmer will be presenting the Society of Plastics Engineers' seminar at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 3 in Ball Hall Room 214. The work in progress provides shocking new data about the importance of the rheological history in characterization of polymer melt viscosity, with significant ramifications in product design, polymer processing, and materials development. A unified constitutive model tying viscosity and viscoelasticity is presented for the first time along with proposed research.
