Beschreibung:

"Molecular modeling of polymers. is a subject that cannot be found in any other [book] in any appreciable detail. The detailed chapters on specific polymer systems are a great idea." --Gregory Odegard, Michigan Technological University "The polymer community needs a textbook that can connect macroscopic mechanics with the mesoscopic and molecular aspects of polymers." --Liangbin Li, University of Science and Technology of China This book takes a unique, multiscale approach to the mechanical properties of polymers, covering both the macroscopic and molecular levels unlike any other book on the market. Based on the authors' extensive research and writing in the field, Polymer Materials emphasizes the relationships between the chemical structure and the mechanical behavior of polymer materials, providing authoritative guidelines for assessing polymer performance under different conditions and the design of new materials. The authors focus on a few representative polymer systems--polystyrene, poly(methyl methacrylate), aliphatic polyamides, and epoxy resins--using them to investigate and demonstrate the different deformation and fracture mechanisms of pure polymers and also their toughening by fillers. The specific deformation and fracture mechanisms active in pure and filled elastomers are also explained in detail. Key features of this book include: * Experimental results on selected examples that precede and reinforce the development of theoretical features * Indepth discussion of a limited number of polymer systems instead of a brief overview of many * Selfcontained chapters with a summary of their key points * Comprehensive problems and a solutions manual for the different parts of the book * Coverage of the basics with an emphasis on polymer dynamics An indispensable resource for polymer scientists and students alike, Polymer Materials is also highly useful for materials scientists, engineers, chemists, and physicists in industry and academia.

Advanced reviews for Polymer Materials
"Molecular modeling of polymers ... is a subject that cannot be found in any other [book] in any appreciable detail. ... [T]he detailed chapters on specific polymer systems is a great idea."

This book takes a unique, multi-scale approach to the mechanical properties of polymers, covering both the macroscopic and molecular levels unlike any other book on the market. Based on the authors' extensive research and writing in the field, Polymer Materials emphasizes the relationships between the chemical structure and the mechanical behavior of polymer materials, providing authoritative guidelines for assessing polymer performance under different conditions and the design of new materials.

Key features of this book include:
Experimental results on selected examples precede and reinforce the development of theoretical features
In-depth discussions of a limited number of polymer systems instead of a brief overview of many
Self-contained chapters with a summary of their key points
Comprehensive problems and a solutions manual for the different parts of the book
Coverage of the basics with an emphasis on polymer dynamics

An indispensable resource for polymer scientists and students alike, Polymer Materials is also highly useful for material scientists, engineers, chemists, and physicists in industry and academia.
