Numerical analysis and experimental modelling of the extrusion process of foamed ribbon

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Development of a numerical simulation of the extrusion of foamed tapes aimed at studying the effect of each process variables on the extrusion flow balancing. Analysis of the effect of the main process parameters of the final morphology of the foamed polymer with focus on: the effect of the foaming agent saturation concentration, the temperature of foaming, the cooling rate in the roll stack and the stretch parameters. Characterization of the foamed tape samples, in terms of cell density, through physical and spectroscopic techniques. The atomic microscopic techniques will allow to determine the size distribution of the cells, their number, the reciprocal distance and to measure the tickness of the not foamed terminal layer.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
