Persoonlijk profiel


Numerical simulations are a powerful tool for the investigation of material processing. The influence of a single parameter can be studied, whereas in experiments this can be extremely difficult or even impossible.

Academic background

Vincent (Govert) de Bie started at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2012. During his master, he did an internship at DSM in Geleen, working on modelling the crystallization kinetics of PA6. He obtained his master's degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2017. He graduated under the supervision of Lambert van Breemen in the research group Polymer Technology (PT). The article that is a result of this project, is entitled: "The effect of an adhesive interaction on predicting the scratch response of PS/PPO blends". In this article, it is stressed that the friction coefficient can be seen as an intrinsic parameter, and is thus material dependent. Towards the end of 2017, he started as a Doctoral Candidate in the PT group under the supervision of Martien Hulsen and Prof. Patrick Anderson.

Research profile

Vincent de Bie is a Doctoral Candidate in the Polymer Technology (PT) group at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). In this group, the focus is on the processing and properties of polymeric materials. In De Bie's research, an external gear pump is numerically studied using the Finite Element Method (FEM). Such a gear pump, is often seen in extrusion systems to control the flow rate. The objective of the project is to obtain the throughput and outflow properties of an external gear pump processing rubber compounds. A key element is discretizing the domain with the tight clearances and moving boundaries. Another element is correctly describing the behavior of the material, which can be dependent on deformation rate, temperature and possibly even pressure. Besides, at high temperatures rubbers start to vulcanize, i.e. crosslinks form between polymer chains, strongly changing the material properties. Rubber compounds contain many ingredients, which can lead to the phenomenom called thixotropy. The main challenge of the project is to incorporate the essential elements, keeping it computationally feasible.
