Bradford University is running two, one day courses in polymer engineering. Day 1 introduces participants to the behaviour of polymer melts on their passage through primary polymer conversion processes, and demonstrates how polymer properties change when subjected to different modes of loading. The course is at introductory level and will cover both melt and solid state characteristics of polymers and how these influence the suitability of a given polymer for an application and choice of processing technologies used by industry.

Day 2 aims to broaden participants’ knowledge of engineering principles governing the polymer extrusion and injection moulding processes. The course will cover advanced processing of each of these technologies and introduce modelling and flow simulation. Participants will gain hands-on experience in simulating mould filling using Autodesk® Moldflow® software.
