Flow-Induced Crystallization Workshop

On 20th-22nd January, Claire attended an industrial-academic workshop dedicated to flow-induced crystallization in polymers held at the Universities of Leeds and Bradford. 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.

As well as presentations from experts from across the globe, the workshop included discussion and demonstration of the rheological modelling software RepTate (Rheology of Entangled Polymers: Toolkit for Analysis of Theory & Experiment), and hands-on lab demonstrations in micro and ultra-sonic moulding, high-shear rheology and 3D printing.
