Workshop on Flow-Induced Crystallisation in Polymers

Flow-induced crystallisation in polymers is a central problem in both polymer physics and industrial polymer processing. The field has seen rapid recent progress in experiments, molecular simulations and modelling.

We invite you to our Industrial-Academic workshop on flow-induced crystallisation in polymers, which will involve presentations, software and demonstration lab experiments. The workshop will take place between 10:30 on Monday 20th January and 17:00 on Wednesday 22nd January and will be jointly hosted by the Universities of Leeds and Bradford.

The contributions from Nottingham, Leeds and Bradford will be based around our ongoing EPSRC-funded project. There will be the change to try out our new crystallisation module in the rheological modelling package RepTate and a hands-on experimental session at the labs in Bradford.


Invited speakers:

Julie Kornfield, Caltech

Ron Larson, University of Michigan

Greg Rutledge, MIT
