Paper Title:
Syntactic Foams Consolidated with Starch: Modelling for Pre-Mould Processing
  Abstract

Various manufacturing parameters involved in the ‘buoyancy method’ were inter-related. An equation based on unit cell models for a relation between volume expansion ratio (VER) of bulk microspheres in aqueous starch and microsphere size was derived. A good agreement between the equation and experimental data was found. The inter-microsphere distance (MID) concept was introduced and it was demonstrated that the MID can be calculated numerically for microspheres with known statistical data.
