Abstract

We study a molecular dynamics model of a polymer-polymer interface for a polyetherimide/polycarbonate blend, including its thermodynamic properties, its chain reptation, and its corresponding welding characteristics. The strength of the sample is analyzed by measuring strain-stress curves in simulations of uni-axial elongation. The work is motivated by potential applications to 3D manufacturing in space.
