Rex Hjelm Presents at 14th Fall Rubber Colloquium
Rex Hjelm, a scientist at the New Mexico Consortium, has been invited to present at the upcoming KHK Fall Rubber Colloquium in Hanover, Germany. His presentation is titled “Molecular-scale polymer melts response to shear in the linear and non-linear rheological domains: affects of molecular weight and complex architecture”.
The 14th Fall Rubber Colloquium will be held from November 8 – 10, 2022. This will be the 14th conference on rubber technology in this series and the first to be held online. This conference attracts attendees from a variety of disciplines from around the world.
The conference highlights the latest and most important scientific concepts and advanced processing techniques in rubber, polymer science and technology. International recognized experts from academic and industrial research will present future trends in the rubber industry and knowledge on high level of final products. The posters will be presented online.
Conference topics include Chemistry, Physics, Processing, Simulation and Sustainability.
Hjelm speaks about the problem of understanding the relationship between the bulk rheological properties of entangled polymeric liquids and molecular architecture. He discusses his work and results measuring polymer structural responses to shear in viscous flow in Couette geometry using small-angle neutron scattering (rheoSANS) to provide critical tests of tube theory in high molecular weight linear polymer melts and in star polymers. This is one of the most interesting and important problems of polymer materials science.
