#693 - Monitoring and Control of Polymer Processes (10B01)
This session will provide a forum for the discussion of the challenges facing academic researchers and industrial practitioners in the field of monitoring and control of polymerization processes. Speakers will discuss the underlying driving forces that characterize these class of process control problems and will describe the design and implementation of state-of-the-art monitoring and control strategies for several representative polymerization processes. Speakers will also discuss the use of process models to gain insights into the design of appropriate control strategies for polymer processes.
