Modelling and simulation of polymer ageing and degradation

1 Research Collaborator position

(Deadline November 29th, 2017 12:00 Italian time - mezzogiorno ora italiana)

Fields:

Polymers; Degradation and ageing; Chemo-physical coupling; Reaction-diffusion systems

Activity:

Modelling and simulation of degradation effects in polymers using reaction-diffusion partial differential equations. Prediction of the loss of adhesion of a polymer from a substrate, the change of light transmission properties of the polymer, the interaction with Silicon due to oxidation effects

 

Profile:

Researcher with expertise in modelling and simulation of ageing in polymers caused by chemical reactions promoted by heat transfer and moisture diffusion

 

Formal requirements:
