Mechanical Properties of Solid Polymers
Providing an updated and comprehensive account of the propertiesof solid polymers, the book covers all aspects of mechanicalbehaviour. This includes finite elastic behavior, linearviscoelasticity and mechanical relaxations, mechanical anisotropy,non-linear viscoelasicity, yield behavior and fracture. New to thisedition is coverage of polymer nanocomposites, and molecularinterpretations of yield, e.g. Bowden, Young, and Argon.
The book begins by focusing on the structure of polymers,including their chemical composition and physical structure. It goes on to discuss the mechanical properties and behaviour ofpolymers, the statistical molecular theories of the rubber-likestate and describes aspects of linear viscoelastic behaviour, itsmeasurement, and experimental studies.
Later chapters cover composites and experimental behaviour,relaxation transitions, stress and yielding. The book concludeswith a discussion of breaking phenomena.
