Tailor-made materials with desired barrier properties from computational modelling

Start date


End date


The goal of the project, which is conducted in collaboration with Tetra Pak Packaging Solutions,is to test, develop and implement computational methods to identify polymeric materials with desired barrier properties. This is important since the barrierproperties affect the functionality of various products, e.g., the containers used to store food stuffs and beverages.

The project will combine the expertise and computational soft-wares found in the Tetra Pak Packaging Solutions and the computational modelling group at the University of Borås.
