Islam, Md Mainul and Kim, Ho Sung (2006) Syntactic foams consolidated with starch: modelling for pre-mould processing. In: 4th International Conference on Advanced Materials & Processing (ICAMP-4), 10-13 Dec 2006, Hamilton, New Zealand.
Various manufacturing parameters involved in ‘buoyancy method’ were inter-related. An equation based on unit cell models with the minimum inter-microsphere distance (MID) concept for a relation between volume expansion rate (VER) of bulk microspheres in aqueous starch and microsphere size was derived and successfully used to predict experimental data. It was demonstrated that the MID can be calculated numerically for microspheres with known statistical data.
