FOR WHO IS RPK-D?

The RPK-programme is designed for engineers, academic and industrial researchers. To attend the RPK module D ‘Rheology & Polymer Processing’, you are expected to have a master’s degree (or equivalent) in chemistry, chemical engineering, physics or a related subject. As pre-requisite, having passed basic (bachelor-level) courses in polymer chemistry and/or polymer physics at the academic level are strongly recommended.

DURING THE COURSE

For further details see programme RPK-D 2019.

AFTER THE COURSE

If you successfully complete RPK module D, you will be aware of the state of the art of what is possible nowadays in computational rheology, in the modelling of polymer processing and in the prediction of mechanical properties of polymeric products as they are influenced by the full thermo-mechanical history during processing. You will understand the success of the modern approaches to circumvent extensive trial and error processes and replace them by a numerical-experimental method that is based on model understanding.
