16. ProblemseminarDeformation and Fracture of Polymers

We invite all interested collegues to attend the 16th conference

Deformation and Fracture Behaviour of Polymers 

which takes place within the frame of the PolyMerTec 2018 from June 13th  to 15th in 2018 in Merseburg.

Contributions in form of lectures and posters are welcome to support the conference and the scientific discussion. 

The aim of the conference is to give a platform for the publication of new results from basic and applied research in the field of deformation and fracture behaviour of polymers with the following topics: 

  • Polymer testing, damage analytics, component diagnostics
  • Toughness characterization of polymers by using fracture mechanics concepts 
  • Hybride methods of polymer testing and polymer diagnostics 
  • Morphology–property correlations Eigenschafts (defectoscopy, material optimization, component monitoring)
  • Deformation and fracature of elastomers and films
  • Long-term behaviour and ageing
  • Biopolymers, biocompatible materials and medical implants
