Series: AAP Research Notes on Polymer Engineering Science and Technology

This new volume presents leading-edge research in the rapidly changing and evolving field of polymer science as well as on chemical processing. The topics in the book reflect the diversity of research advances in the production and application of modern polymeric materials and related areas, focusing on the preparation, characterization, and applications of polymers. Also covered are various manufacturing techniques. The book helps to fill the gap between theory and practice in industry.

This new book:

  • is a collection of chapters that highlights some important areas of current interest in polymer products and chemical processes
  • gives an up-to-date and thorough exposition of the present state of the art of polymer analysis
  • familiarizes the reader with new aspects of the techniques used in the examination of polymers, including chemical, physico-chemical and purely physical methods of examination
  • describes the types of techniques now available to the polymer chemist and technician, and discusses their capabilities, limitations, and applications
  • provides a balance between materials science and mechanics aspects, basic and applied research, and high technology and high volume (low cost) composite development
The book introduces current state-of-the-art technology in modern materials with an emphasis on the rapidly growing technologies. It takes a unique approach by presenting specific materials and then progresses into a discussion of the ways in which these materials and processes are integrated into today's functioning manufacturing industry. Readers will also discover how material properties relate to the process variables in a given process as well as how to perform quantitative engineering analysis of manufacturing processes.
