The PhD project will focus on the physico-chemistry & mechanics of highly-filled polymer compounds obtained through an extrusion process. It will aim at globally understanding how mechanical (stiffness & ductility, fatigue resistance…) and thermal (dilatation, stiffness close to the Tg…) properties are linked with the formulation and also with the process parameters. We will focus on a PVC matrix (polymer) in which a large amount of CaCO3 particles (filler) is dispersed.
