Course description and aims

Designing, processing and final products of fibers and polymers will be discussed. Linkage between required properties of final products and materials design will be discussed from the view of the development of daily products.

Student learning outcomes

Based on the fundamental characteristics of organic materials such as melt flow characteristics, thermal properties, chemical properties and physical properties of solids, relation between film processing and final application of films will be explained. Through this knowledge, students will understand the method for designing the characteristics of organic materials such as surface proeprteis, mechanical proeprties etc. and thier relations with fundamental theories.
