Kursspecifika förkunskaper

Surface and materials science (KTK105) or courses with equivalent polymer content.

Syfte

The aim of this course is to provide the students with a comprehensive knowledge about polymeric materials. The focus is mainly on processing of polymers as well as on the behaviour of different polymeric materials.

Lärandemål (efter fullgjord kurs ska studenten kunna)


  • follow a formal procedure for designing a plastic device.

  • correlate the mechanical and chemical properties of a polymer with the demands put on a device, and be familiar with relevant expressions in this field.

  • describe the properties and application areas of various polymers.

  • explain the concepts of rheology and how it affects the processing methods and process parameters 

  • choose a suitable polymer for a specific application, and present arguments for the choices based on the polymer- and device properties.

  • describe the most important methods of polymer processing.

  • explain the main principles of fiber and rubber technology

  • define and describe a polymer composite and its properties, including the area of nanocomposites, as well as the manufacturing processes.

  • calculate the “life time” of a material and critically discuss different aspects of recycling.

  • Reason about the concept of biopolymers and present arguments for how polymeric materials can fit into a sustainable society.

Innehåll

This course is an advanced course in polymer technology, where the focus is rather on the properties and behavior of the polymeric material from a more industrial point of view than on the fundamental chemistry and physics of polymers. The course covers areas such as processing and processing methods of polymers, mechanical properties, differences between polymers and other material as well as differences within the vast group of polymeric materials. Besides the more commonly used plastics, the course also deals with fibers and nanocomposites.


The course also discusses the recycling of plastics as well as gives an overview of a new generation of polymers originating from renewable resources, thereby giving a better understanding of how plastic materials be used in a sustainable society.

Organisation

The course includes lectures, a design project which is to be presented both as a written report and during a seminar session, and a compulsory study visit to a representative polymer industry.

Litteratur

A Brent Strong “Plastics: Materials and processing” (Third edition)

Examination

The assessment of the learning outcomes is tested through a written exam, grades TH. Some of the learning outcomes are also examined through the design task where the written report must be approved and an active participation on the seminar is required. Participation on the study visit is also required.
