1 Review
Featuring contributions from experts at some of the world's leading academic and industrial institutions, Advanced Polymeric Materials: Structure Property Relationships brings into book form a wealth of information previously available primarily only within computer programs. In a welcome narrative treatment, it provides comprehensive coverage of polymeric materials, including polymer composites as well as the more commonly addressed polymer blends. Along with discussion on a variety of applications, topics include general aggregate properties, design considerations, characterization and enhancement of physical and mechanical properties, processing and manufacturing, and components failure.
