Polymer molecular modeling at integrated length/time scales

Objective

The PMILS proposal addresses the fundamental question of predicting macroscopic properties for polymeric materials from their molecular constitution and processing history. In order to tackle this long-standing problem we will combine a wide range of expertise in modeling tools (quantum mechanical, molecular, mesoscopic, macroscopic) and experimental methods. Essential innovations of the project are: i) organization of these methods in a systematic hierarchical approach ii) use of integration tools. We will develop an understanding of the mechanisms responsible for polymer performance using techniques not available through the most advanced commercial software. We will apply that understanding to a selected set of industrially relevant problems. The main expected result is an integrated design tool for polymer materials able to predict properties from molecular structure and processing history
