DFG Project Approved for Associated Junior Research Group Leaders Dr.-Ing. Stefanie Elgeti

The project "Automated design and optimisation of dynamic mixing and shear elements for single-screw extruder” will be conducted together with Prof. Christian Hopmann, the head of the Institute for Plastic Processing in Aachen. The next three years of research will be devoted to developing a simulation-based methodology that allows a deterministic design of single-screw extruders. This will significantly advance the current state of the art, where designer mostly rely on experience and trial-and-error procedures.
