EMMC Case Study DOW

EMMC and DOW present the CASE STUDY

Modelling Drop Impact Test of Flexible Pouches Made of Thin Polyethylene Films

Interview of Hein Koelman, Dow
Writers: Alexandra Simperler and Gerhard Goldbeck (Goldbeck Consulting)

The case is based on a market demand for novel and lightweight flexible food packaging replacing rigid forms of packaging, including rigid plastic, glass or metal. These “pouches” are indeed very lightweight and also do not take up much volume when disposed of. However, ….

EMMC Translation Case: SINTEF

thumbnail of Translation Case_SINTEF

SINTEF is the largest independent research organization in Scandinavia (https://www.sintef.no/en/).

SINTEF is a  non-commercial organization, which supported the development of many companies via research and development in materials technology, applied chemistry, biotechnology, technology management, materials modelling and other fields.

The modelling and optimization of the flow and oxide skin behavior in hot dip galvanizing process for a SME are considered in this translation case. The SME was delivering the furnace to clients and the work was related to technology transfer to support the delivery of the furnaces. The translation activity has the aim to provide the concrete recommendations to improve the industrial process.

EMMC Translation Case: IK4-TEKNIKER

IK4-TEKNIKER (http://www.tekniker.es/en) is a research organization which main activity is focused on manufacturing. The organization covers four Research areas: Advanced Manufacturing, Surface Engineering, ICTs and Product Engineering.

IK4 – TEKNIKER is a private research organization which main mission is to enhance the positioning and competitiveness of clients through technology transfer. Hence, IK4 – TEKNIKER plays the role of Technology Transfer Institute in the framework of EMMC.

The focus of the industrial problem described in the translation case is the modelling of heat treatment processes on forged gears. Material characterization is the additional point of the translation process provided for a SME. The main application sectors of the client are Defence (Antiaircraft artillery) and Energy (Mobility and power generation and power management).

The translation case demonstrates the benefit for the client to establish a methodology based on modelling and material characterization to be applied for industrial components before the thermal treatment stages on their forged parts.

EMMC Translation Case: Nanomatch

Nanomatch is a Software Company (SME) located in Germany (http://www.nanomatch.de/). The Company provides predictive & parameter-free simulation tools for virtual materials design and computer based device optimization in organic electronics, implemented in a seamless workflow using electronic, atomistic, and continuum models.

The translation case describes the process of the integration of combining multiple models on the electronic, molecular and device scale into a seamless, predictive multi-scale workflow in industry.

Nanomatch used the multiscale approach, where information on the electronic scale (quantum mechanical computations of molecules) is transferred via the atomistic scale (molecular layers) to the device scale in four simulation steps.

The expected outcome of the translation process is the large-scale in-house application of state-of-the-art models by the client, in order to allow simulations on systems that include proprietary materials.
