Using MedeA to Study Formation and Properties of Polymer Networks
Attend this webinar to increase your knowledge of network structures at the molecular level and make accurate predictions of the associated material properties.
Thermosetting polymers find widespread application in a variety of modern technologies used in the aerospace, automotive, electronics, protective coating and other industries. Theoretical prediction of the structure of these 3-dimensional infinite network systems was made long before the advent of modern computers, though the basic predictions remain valid and are often employed today. More recently however, development of fast computers, software and high throughput simulation methods have led to the possibility of significantly increasing our knowledge of network structure at the molecular level, and in the ability to make accurate predictions of the associated material properties. In this webinar we will:
Review of the key features of reactant molecular architecture that influence polymer network formation and structure of cured systems.
Discuss how MedeA's Thermoset Builder and High throughput modeling environment have been used to investigate gelation in experimentally well studied epoxy, urethane, and alkyd thermosetting resins.
Provide examples of how MedeA's Building and Simulation tools can be used to study industrially important properties of complex systems containing crosslinked polymers.
