RCC is pleased to announce these two talks by RCC Fellows on Engineering.
- Theoretical methods for the dynamics of polymeric liquids, Jorge Ramírez García, Visiting Fellow at Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Abstract: The dynamical response of polymers has important consequences in many industrial applications. Most polymeric materials are processed in the melt state or in solution, and the rheological response of polymer fluids can have a big effect on the processing conditions and on the properties of final products.
In this talk, I give a short review of the most important facts regarding the dynamics of entangled polymer fluids, from a historical point of view, and describe some important challenges that polymer scientists will need to solve in the future.
After the talk, Jorge Ramírez will give a short review of the related topics that will be presented in the forthcoming American Physical Society meeting in Baltimore, in March 2016.
- The ‘Aesthetics of Energy’ in Architecture, Eduardo Prieto, Visiting Scholar at Harvard Graduate School of Design.
