Plastics: microstructure and engineering applications
Compact discs, cycle helmets and gas pipelines - these are diverse applications of plastic materials, each involving a unique engineering analysis. 'Plastics' highlights these examples, and its thorough and balanced treatment will provide students, engineers and scientists with a solid foundation for the analysis and development of many other plastic products. In this edition, the material has been reordered to emphasize the structural divisions of topic areas and to support teaching on practically oriented courses. Major new sections on materials selection and on the three design case-studies have been added and each chapter includes questions to test the reader's understanding.
