ETPL 4445 - Advanced Processing 2

Credits: 4
Applies the theory developed in ETPL 3345 to unsteady-state (cyclic) polymer processes:  blow-, injection-, rotational- and compression molding, plus thermoforming.  Explores unsteady-state heat transfer in injection-, rotational-, and blow molding, and elongational flows (fibre spinning).  Revisits the blown film and blow-molding processes in greater depth.  Introduces additional concepts in stress analysis; the mechanical behavior of shells; bending of beams, and applies these to the prediction of the mechanical behavior of polymers in a variety of applications, including snap fit connections. Prereq: ETPL 3345 $
