Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Software for Three-Dimensional Simulation of Polymer Coextrusion

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,996.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project involves development of software for accurate simulation of polymer coextrusion. Even though use of coextrusion software is critical for optimizing the process, die designers in the plastic industry rarely use commercial coextrusion… More

SBIR Phase I: Three-Dimensional Simulation of Polymer Coextrusion using a Fixed Finite Element Mesh

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project involves development of asoftware for an accurate simulation of polymer co-extrusion. The new co-extrusion software will use a unique proprietary constitutive theory, which can accurately capture the complex rheological behavior of polymers.… More

SBIR Phase I: Optimization of Screw Geometry and Processing Conditions using Three-Dimensional Simulation of Melting and Melt Flow in Twin-Screw Extruders

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop software for three-dimensional simulation of the two-phase flow in a twin-screw extruder. Currently available analytical tools for design of twin-screw extruders are based upon simplified one-dimensional or two-dimensional… More

SBIR Phase I: Die Design Software For Polymer Coextrusion Including Layer Rearrangement Due To Viscous Encapsulation And Secondary Flow

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
NSF
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop software for an accurate simulation of polymer co-extrusion. During co-extrusion, different polymers are extruded simultaneously through a single die. Coextruded plastic parts combine the functionalities and benefits of… More
