Contact creep and recovery properties on non transparent glassy polymers

A new set-up was developed to analyze rheological response of non transparent polymer surfaces submitted to contact or sliding contact conditions. This is a collaborative work with Holo3 (funding : Carnot MICA).

Research interests :

  • analysis of viscous flow (contact creep and recovery) and nonlinearities (viscopolasticity) depending on structural parameters of the studied polymers (semicrystalline, anisotropy, etc.)
  • analysis of the influence of environmental conditions (RH, T) on viscous flow.

Collaborations :

  • Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Netherlands,
  • Holo3, Saint-Louis, France.
  • Within ICS : CMP.
