Kinetics Neo is a stand-alone software package for the simulation of aging, sintering and curing and other reactive processes as a function of time. Based on the story of the webinar “Material characterization along the CFRP manufacturing process” this webinar focuses on the use of Kinetics Neo to simulate the progress of the underlying curing reaction of the used material. How to create the necessary data using thermal analysis methods and how to build up a kinetic model will be shown. In the conclusion, predictions for different processing scenarios will be made and the impacts on the curing are presented. 

Primary Topics: 
1. Fundamentals on kinetics 
2. How to use NETZSCH Kinetics NEO 
3. How Kinetics NEO can help to optimize your process
