Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course consists of a project assignment on the theme: mass transport properties of polymers, that the student will carry out, preferably with connections to the students own research. The content of the project is decided jointly between the student and the examiner, but should have a clear connection to the course literature.

The course literature include:

Mechanisms for diffusion. General trends of diffusivity and solubility. Diffusion in elastomers, semicrystalline and amorphous polymers and thermosets. Concentration-dependent diffusion and swelling, measuring methods, membranes and barrier properties. 

Intended learning outcomes

That the student obtains a deeper knowledge within the field of mass transport properties of polymers.
