VEL Basic + Melt & Solid Thermal Properties

Test ID  

Properties needed for VEL modules that consider the polymers behavior in both the melt and solid state are generated. These include viscosity vs. shear rate at three processing temperatures; thermal conductivity vs. temperature, specific heat vs. temperature and heat of fusion, solid density , and melt density at the process temperature.    
Included Tests  
# Test Id Test Name
1x D-010 Solid Density
1x D-015 Melt Density
3x R-011 Capillary Rheology (1 Temperature)
1x T-015 Specific Heat
1x T-103 Thermal Conductivity Scan
Measured property data is provided. Viscosity data are fit using the VEL model.  
1 - kg of pellets [details]
2 - parts, any shape [details]
Simulations using the VEL Extruder and Chill Roll module which requires information on both the polymer's melt and solid state properties. Visco-elastic effects are assumed to be insignificant.
