The phrase was selected in 1992 at the birth of Pultrusion
Dynamics to convey the commitment to upgrade the capability
of pultrusion companies by blending the often academic studies
of researchers with the practical needs of manufacturers.
The key to success along this path is to understand the science
of heat transfer, fluid dynamics, reaction kinetics, composite
design, etc., and to apply it
in a practical and affordable manner to pultrusion process
design and control.
This has been the mission statement of Joseph E. Sumerak throughout
his career ventures -- a dedication to discovery and open
discussion of pultrusion technology developments that can
be applied to achieve maximum productivity at lowest cost.
The outcome is less reliance on the "Art" of Pultrusion and
more confidence with the "Science" basis; less reliance on
subjective interpretation of observations and more reliance
on objective process data.
Again originating in 1992, the Pultrusion Dynamics focus was
understanding what goes on inside the pultrusion die as discrete
liquid resin saturated fibers are transformed into a consolidated
high strength thermoset pultruded product through cross-linking
