A contribution to the development of micro-thermal analysis by theoretical modelling of the technique and experimental exploration of multiphase polymeric systems

Project Details


The purpose of this project is to explore and optimize micro-thermal analysis, a new and advanced thermal analysis technique for the characterization of multiphase (polymer) materials. This purpose is pursued by a multidisciplinary strategy using three approaches: (1) a theoretical approach of the technique by modeling using the finite element calculation method, (2) the experimental characterization of the instrument response, (3) experimental exploration of the techniques potential on multi-phase polymeric systems.
The potential of a heat-cool temperature stage in combination with the micro-thermal analysis module will be explored, especially in terms of the in-situ characterization of dynamic processess at the materials surface.
