I am considering making a model to automate and expand our understanding of our semi-batch emulsion polymerization recipes/products. I'd like it to calculate in-process conversion, density, viscosity, heat capacity, thermal conductivity, heat transfer coefficients, and pressure. I plan to use it for optimization and "what ifs". I would like some opinions on whether to go at it empirically with lab data or with a theoretical dynamic model. Please state if you have experience with either one in latex reaction applications. Thanks!
Good luck, Latexman

Since the later 1980s, manufacturing companies have seen over 3 percent in labor output year on year, with most of this productivty enhancement occuring because of the optimization of repetitive tasks. Download Now
