Modeling, processing and optimization of highly-filled polymer wood fiber composites 

Biocomposites are a critical ingredient in the context of overarching societal efforts to increase the use of renewable materials. Therefore, the use of polymer with natural fiber reinforcements is expected to increase significantly. A current drive for polymer biocomposites is to maximize the use of renewable content in mass production systems. However, the full potential …

Cellulose fibre/fibre interactions within molded fibre composites

This project aims to model cellulose fibre/fibre interactions using assembled CNF filaments produced by co-axial extrusion. These long, uniform filaments provide an excellent platform to investigate the impact of chemical and physical modification on joint strength. The findings of this work can then be used to a develop a better understanding of the interactions within …
