Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The availability of reliable data on material properties is essential in chemical engineering and for industrial process layout. This course offers the possibility to determine physical-chemical properties of fluids or polymers in escorted individual experiments at the laboratories of the Institute for Materials Chemistry and Research. Especially experiments on glass transition temperature, elasticity, viscosity and fluid dynamics are offered. Therefore, the course is an ideal supplement for the lecture 'Estimation of physical-chemical Properties' which discusses the theoretical background of the processes and methods for the estimation of properties. The practice comprises the whole scientific process: measurement, data analysis and protocol in a communication letter like write up.
The experimental work covers 1 full week for experiments and data analysis and 1-2 days for the 'communication letter'.
If the participants also visit the lecture 'Estimation of physical-chemical Properties' we use the remaining 25 units for 5 exercises related to the lecture. Otherwise the students will present their research to the other participants in a seminar.
