Development and experimental examination of a descriptive model to determine the rheological behaviour of waxes (storage, application, drying) on the basis of the internal structures that form

In the automotive industry in particular, cavities are preserved with wax systems which are applied by spraying. Three different material systems are used here: 100% systems and systems which use organic solvents or water as the solvent. The aqueous wax systems are complex, non-Newtonian emulsions whose rheological behaviour is adjusted to reduce undesirable or maximise desirable effects when the formulation is developed. There is as yet no overall descriptive model for the complex rheological behaviour. This project aims to develop such a model and to examine it by means of experiments and statistical analyses of the experiments.

Development of an intelligent process development system for the optimisation and development of bioprocesses

Part of the project involves developing an online analytical device based on mid-infrared (MIR) transmission spectroscopy to be used in the manufacture of bio-pharmaceutical proteins. The development here is to be conducted in such a way that the device is suitable for the monitoring of industrial processes and can be coupled directly to them (on-line). The focus of attention is on the creation of a user-friendly system, which can be used in both upstream as well as downstream processes.
