Two Days Hands on workshop on Computational Modelling of Polymeric Materials

15th & 16th September 2017 at at Hotel Iv Sanctum, Gandhinagar, Bangalore

About the Seminar and Workshop

In the field of material science and engineering, computational modelling plays a major role in development of new materials with required properties and performance, if it can be made use of in predicting physical properties of the materials especially chemical structure, compositions and also processing conditions with optimised properties.

The challenge of predicting physical properties of the polymer materials are difficult as it varies greatly, the varied physical properties of polymeric materials arise from their different structures, compositions and processing conditions.

However, the new era of nano simulation technologies has changed the approach and made it easy for engineers/scientists to estimate the properties of the polymers at different scales and conditions. The basic structure of a polymer is determined by the chemical structure of its monomers. However, the molecular weight and molecular weight distribution of a polymer generally depend on polymerization conditions and the Molecular Dynamics Approach will enable the engineers to predict important properties of the polymeric materials such as

  • Mechanical Properties – Stress-Strain curve, Elastic modulus, Hysteresis, Peeling, Interfacial failure
  • Thermal Properties – Glass transition, Melting, Thermal expansion
  • Permeability/ Diffusion – Gas barrier, Dissolution mechanism of gas or small molecule, Diffusion mechanism of gas or small molecule
  • Interfacial: Solubility, Phase separation, Interface structure, Surface tension, Surfactant’s effect
  • Rheology: G’, G’’, Viscoelasticity
  • Optical:  Birefringence

And so on for Plastic, Rubber, Elastomer, Synthetic fiber, Thin film, Paint, Ink, Adhesive, Fuel cell, Battery, Detergent, Cosmetic, Liquid Crystal and so on.

This planned Seminar aims to cover theoretical, analytical, practical testing and computational modelling of polymeric materials from atomic, nano, meso, micro scale to macro scale modelling and real-time application engineering.  Invited industrial and academic experts will share their knowledge and experience with the participants.

We encourage participants to bring their queries, problems and pose to the expert panel and get the solution.,

Looking forward for your active participation
