Detailed information
Original study plan Master's programme Management in Polymer Technologies (MPT) 2018W
Objectives This master course aims to harmonize the different educational backgrounds of the international students in the master’s program “Management in Polymer Technologies (MPT)”. Basic engineering tasks are presented and used to repeat the essential, mainly mathematical and mechanical calculations required as fundamental knowledge of polymeric materials for other courses in this master’s program.
Subject Vector analysis and matrices; Force systems on rigid bodies; Deformations and stresses; Mechanical calculations for tensile, compressive, shear and bending loads; Notches and stress concentrations; Mechanical material properties, their calculations and experimental measurement; Discussion of the terms elasticity, isotropy, anisotropy and Hooke’s law; Time- and temperature dependent material behaviour in polymeric materials; Specific polymeric material behaviour (tension, pressure, temperature, time, load history etc.). Coefficient of linear thermal expansion and heat conductivity. Various diffusion models for polymers
