PLAS.5250 Synthetic Fibers: Processing-Structure-Properties (Formerly 26.525)

Id: 004228 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


An introduction to processing-structure-properties of fibers and its significance to modern advanced materials. This course coves both traditional and emerging fiber spinning methods (ex. solution spinning, melt extrusion, gel-spinning, and electrospinning), post-processing techniques (ex. yarns, weaving), and the resulting multi-scale structures and properties. The unique physical and chemical properties of fibers and its application as past and emerging advanced materials will be discussed.
