Carestream R&D Manufacturing Technology Engineer Lee Runyon received an honorable mention in the AIMCAL John Matteucci Award for Technical Excellence in Web Coating for his technical paper entitled, “CFD Modeling: Key Fields and Numerical Methods to Understand Before Starting Hopper Modeling.”
Presented at the 2018 AIMCAL R2R Conference USA, the paper details the application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to predict and optimize coating flow. Runyon’s research also offers guidance on using simulation technologies such as CFD and other advanced numerical techniques to significantly reduce cost and shorten cycle times for the scale-up of new products.
Carestream’s achievement marks the fourth consecutive year that the company has been honored for a technical paper at the AIMCAL R2R Conference. The John Matteucci Award recognizes the best papers submitted in each of the Web Coating and Vacuum Web Coating tracks, in honor of Matteucci ─ a leader in the field of web coatings.
