Fundamental and Clinical Cardiology #30: Polymer Tougheningby Charles B. Arends
Synopses & Reviews
This work provides comprehensive coverage of the basic theories and hands-on techniques of polymer toughening, demonstrating the similarities in methods of measurement and toughness enhancement found in various classes of polymeric materials, including foams, films, adhesives and moulding grade polymers. It provides a detailed overview, from historical and current points of view, of polymer toughening as practiced in industry, and lays the theoretical groundwork for the analysis and prediction of different modes of toughening.
Book News Annotation:
Both a practical guide and reference, the papers from researchers at Dow Chemical Company outline the theories and techniques of polymer toughening, demonstrating similarities and methods of measurement and toughness enhancement in various types of polymeric materials: foams, films, adhesives, and molding grade polymers. The focus is on analysis and prediction from an industrial point of view, and information in the latest research findings and design concepts in the laboratory e.g. microscope methods for evaluation, and the integration of chemical and mechanical testing.
