Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MN
Budget: 07/01/15 - 06/30/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is the reduction in the development time and cost of the dies employed for coextrusion of multilayer plastic products. The die optimization software which will be developed in this project will reduce the lead time for coextrusion die design...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

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 several polymers into a single multi-functional ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

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 analysis. However, the two-phase flow in twin-s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

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. The three-dimensional mesh of tetrahedral finite ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

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 software because these packages cannot simulate co...
