Kalyon wins Society of Plastics Engineers' 2008 Research Award
Date:8/22/2008

HOBOKEN, N.J. -- Dr. Dilhan M. Kalyon, Professor of Chemical Engineering and Director of the Highly Filled Materials Institute at Stevens Institute of Technology, has won the Society of Plastics Engineers' 2008 Research Award (in Memory of John C. Moricoli). Kalyon received his B.Eng. in Chemical Engineering in Ankara, Turkey, and his M. Eng. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering/Polymers at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.

Kalyon's primary accomplishment has been the generation of the basic science and the technology base for the continuous processing of highly filled suspensions of plastics, which are used in myriad industries, including polymeric composites, biomedical, pharmaceutical, battery, energy, electronics, energetics, shielding, and personal care products.

Understanding the special behavior of highly filled systems led Kalyon to found, in 1989, the Highly Filled Materials Institute at Stevens, which has received many grants from very diverse industries. He and his team developed new devices and analysis methods for rheological characterization of polymers and concentrated polymeric suspensions such as the adjustable gap slit rheometer and the squeeze flow rheometry, methodologies for the inverse problem solution for parameters of constitutive equations and wall slip, and mathematical models for processing and manufacturing.

In the course of his research, Kalyon attracted many students, more than 30 of whom have received degrees with work in plastics. He has published widely (more than 240 publications), and holds several patents. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, a Fellow of SPE, and was awarded an honorary Master of Engineering degree from Stevens.
