  1. 1. Volumetric Analysis in Mechanical Behaviour and Physical Ageing of Polymers

    Author : Mats Delin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ageing rate; Gr neisen parameter; bulk modulus; KAHR model; dilatometry; Poisson s ratio; timescale; physical ageing; dynamic mechanical properties; stress relaxation; volume changes; creep; Doolittle s equation;

    Abstract : Volumetric changes associated with the deformation of ideal elastic solids depends on elastic constants of the solid and applied strain. Their magnitude is easily determined from the corresponding Poisson's ratios. READ MORE

  2. 2. Water diffusion and free volume in hydrophilic polymers

    Author : Charlotte Trotzig; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; free volume; self-diffusion; degree of crystallinity; glass transition temperature; tensile storage modulus; surface tension; isotherm; HPMC; PEO; water; triacetin; clay; Macromolecular chemistry; dynamic mechanical analysis; Fysikalisk kemi; differential scanning calorimetry; nuclear magnetic resonance; positron annihilation; Makromolekylär kemi;

    Abstract : During moisture uptake in polymers, the diffusion of the water molecules is believed to occur via unoccupied voids. These voids are called free volume cavities and their sizes are continuously altered when the moisture content in the polymer is enhanced. READ MORE

  3. 3. Macroscopic Volume and Free Volume of Polymer Blends and Pressure-densified Polymers

    Author : Marcus Schmidt; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : free-volume theories; refractive index; Lorentz-Lorenz equation; loss tangent; Avrami equation; freezing fractions; copolymers; polymer blends; pressure dilatometry; Tait equation of state; free-volume distributions; pressure-densified polymers; entropy of melting; dynamic-mechanical analysis; positronium; positron annihilation; free volume; cavity size; polymers; bulk modulus; PVT; phase separation; compressibility; thermal expansivity;

    Abstract : The macroscopic volume V as a function of pressure P and temperature T is obtained from PVT measurements. PVT data is sensitive to the state of polymers and changes therein. Moreover, PVT data gives access to the free-volume fraction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Rheological and mechanical properties of systems containing nanocellulose

    Author : Tobias Moberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Shear rheology; Cellulose nanocrystals; Cellulose nanofibrils; Mechanical properties; Dynamic-mechanical analysis; Composites; Extensional rheology;

    Abstract : Nanocellulose is a cellulose entity at the nanoscale. There are several different types of nanocellulose such as cellulose nanofibrils (CNF), which are long, somewhat flexible fibrils and cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), which are shorter and more rod-like particles. READ MORE

  5. 5. Control of Structure of Filled Polymer Blends

    Author : Claes Hammer; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : interactions; modelling; polypropylene; structure control; dynamic mechanical properties; filled polymer blends;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the control and analysis of the structure of filled immiscible polypropylene (PP) blends. The intention has also been to implement the knowledge gained in respect of commercially interesting systems as filled PP/(ethylene propylene copolymer (EP)) blends. READ MORE
