Yerba Buena Ballroom 3 (Marriott San Francisco)
#201 - Polymer Processing and Rheology I (08A08)
This session welcomes contributions in all areas of polymer processing and rheology. Topics of interest include the relationships between molecular architecture and rheology, structure development during processing, modeling of polymer processing, the use of rheological measurements to optimize processing, and the influence of processing-induced morphology on product properties.
