4.5 Application coverletters

August 20, 1991
Dear Dr. Brown,

Commend the organization's reputation in a particular field By designating ABC as my primary interest area in ASME and having received the ABC Newsletter for quite some time, I realized that CGFM would be a resourceful group for my professional interest in flow measurements.

Your current project Our institute, the Center for Measurement Standards (CMS/ITRI), has tentatively chosen mid October as the starting date to develop a national liquid and gas standard flow measurement laboratory in Taiwan, R.O.C. Laboratory development specifications The laboratory will have the following capacity rating:
Oil: up to 6,000 lpm (uncertainty: +0.1-0.4% from light to heavy oil)
Water: up to 10,000 lpm (uncertainty: +0.2%)
Air: up to 7,000 SM/hr (uncertainty: +0.25%)
Once the laboratory is developed, our work will be extended into several potential flow studies, e.g., multiphase flows, LDV, pump and fan performance, air flow in wind tunnel and CFD related scheduled programs at Atlanta, Georgia. Information request for participation in related activities offered by their organization Could you send me information on the necessary forms for this activity? We are also interested in pursuing collaboration with your research program, based on our mutual interests. I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely yours,

4.6 Training program suggestions

January 14, 1994
Dear Dr. Lin,

Previous discussion regarding training session In our last conversation, in December, I mentioned the possibility of arranging a short-course on Molecular Simulation. I have already received your letter dated December 10. Thank you for your valuable suggestions concerning the development of molecular simulation at UCL.

General theme of proposed seminar As you previously stated, molecular simulation is an effective tool for facilitating the identification of polymer structure and application. I also agree that the introduction of Molecular Simulation at UCL would stimulate a more thorough understanding, and much related research activity in the area of polymer morphology-structure property relationships.

Background information of your laboratory's research interests The current and future topics to be undertaken at the Polymer Division include Morphology Control Polymer Blends, Interface/Adhesion of Thermoplastic Composite, and Polymer Additive/Processing Aid Behavior in Polymer Matrixes. Therefore, many of our future research activities will be related to adhesion, surface, interface and interaction forces. The systems we would like to employ may be primarily related to polymer blends and coation/surface treatments. I hope that through this short training program, we can determine the systems and research topics that need to be focused on.

Specific topics to be covered in the seminar The following topics may be a helpful guide when determining the content of a short training course. Of course, you should feel free to ammend or expand any of these topics.
1. Current developments and the application of MS in Polymer research
2. Applications of co-polymer composition/structure/property (specific topics of interest: hexamethyldiamine, adipic acid, terephthalic acid copolymer property and structure)
3. Polyolefin (PE, PP, PS) Conformation/Properties (system of particular interest: Metallocene Based Polymers)
4. Adhesion/Interface: Polymer Blends and Tire Cords (Nylon 6, Nylon 66, PET) in Rubber
5. Surface Treatment/Adhesion (Thin Film Formation on Polymer Surface, i.e., Plasma, Chemical Vapor Deposition and Adhesion with Polymer Substrates, such as PC and PMMA)

The above topics are simply for your reference. Topics #3 and #5 can be prioritized, with #2 and #3 as the minor emphases. I hope related fundamental concepts (Theory, Basis and Structure of MS) and the state-of-the-art MS technology can also be included in the training curriculum.

I look forward to your response to some of these above mentioned concerns. Happy Holidays.

Sincerely yours,
