The name of the conference was “Nanofibers for the 3rd Millennium”. It was organised by Elmarco, Inc.and The Nonwovens Institute at North Carolina State University at Raleigh, NC.

The topic name was “Meltblowing: linear and nonlinear waves on viscoelastic polymer jets” and the abstract of the poster was:

“The work is devoted to meltblown polymer jets. Polymer jets are experiencing strong stretching and flapping being subjected to the pulling action of a high speed surrounding axisymmetric gas jet. We show experimentally that bending perturbations of polymer melt jets are triggered by the surrounding turbulent eddies and enhanced by the distributed lift force acting on the jets. We study experimentally and theoretically/numerically the growth of bending perturbations of polymer jet in meltblowing and their configurations in 2D and 3D. Both isothermal and non-isothermal cases are considered.”
