This book describes the properties of single polymer molecules and polymeric materials and the methods how to characterize them. Molar masses, molar mass distributions and branching structure are discussed in detail. These properties are decisive for a deeper understanding of structure/properties relationships of polymeric materials. This book therefore describes and discusses them in detail. The mechanical behavior as a function of time and temperature is a key subject of the book. The authors present it on the basis of many original results they have obtained in their long research careers. They present the temperature dependence of mechanical properties of various polymeric materials in a wide temperature range: from cryogenic temperatures to the melt. Besides an extensive data collection on the transitions of various different polymeric materials, they also carefully present the physical explanations of the observed phenomena. Glass transition and melting temperatures are discussed, particularly, with their relevance for applications. A comprehensive part of the book deals with properties of polymers in the molten state and their decisive influence on the processing of the materials. The book presents and discusses viscous and elastic properties in detail as a function of molar mass, polydispersity, and branching. This book addresses students of polymer and materials science, as well as other natural sciences. Besides this educational value, it will also serve as a valuable monograph for everyone dealing with polymers and polymeric materials, from research, over development, to applications.

Volume 1 presents first fundamental principles of the rheology of polymeric fluid including kinematics and stresses of a deformable body, the continuum theory for the viscoelasticity of flexible homogeneous polymeric liquids, the molecular theory for the viscoelasticity of flexible homogeneous polymeric liquids, and the experimental methods for the measurement of the rheological properties of poylmeric liquids. The materials presented are intended to set a stage for the subsequent chapters by introducing the basic concepts and principles of rheology, from both phenomenological and molecular perspectives, ofstructurally simple flexible and homogeneous polymeric liquids. Next, this volume presents the rheological behavior of structurally complex polymeric materials including miscible polymer blends, block copolymers, liquid-crystalline polymers, thermoplastic polyurethanes, immiscible polymer blends, perticulare-filled polymers, organoclay nanocomposites, molten polymers with dissolved gas, and thermosts.

"This new edition introduces the field of polymers, balancing chemistry, physics, and engineering applications. It updates a classic text used in introductory polymer courses, but has not been updated since 1993. This revised and updated edition focuses on new technologies that use polymers, new feedstocks, polymers derived from biological sources, new polymerization strategies, and analysis of polymers. Further, the third edition includes new homework problems and examples. With the updates mentioned, the book now includes the latest concepts while also remaining friendly to students new to the field"--

This book is the first to introduce a mesoscale polymer simulation system called OCTA. With its name derived from "Open Computational Tool for Advanced material technology," OCTA is a unique software product, available without charge, that was developed in a project funded by Japanese government. OCTA contains a series of simulation programs focused on mesoscale simulation of the soft matter COGNAC, SUSHI, PASTA, NAPLES, MUFFIN, and KAPSEL. When mesoscale polymer simulation is performed, one may encounter many difficulties that this book will help to overcome. The book not only introduces the theoretical background and functions of each simulation engine, it also provides many examples of the practical applications of the OCTA system. Those examples include predicting mechanical properties of plastic and rubber, morphology formation of polymer blends and composites, the micelle structure of surfactants, and optical properties of polymer films. This volume is strongly recommended as a valuable resource for both academic and industrial researchers who work in polymer simulation.

The selection and application of engineered materials is an integrated process that requires an understanding of the interaction between materials properties, manufacturing characteristics, design considerations, and the total life cycle of the product. This reference book on engineering plastics provides practical and comprehensive coverage on how the performance of plastics is characterized during design, property testing, and failure analysis. The fundamental structure and properties of plastics are reviewed for general reference, and detailed articles describe the important design factors, properties, and failure mechanisms of plastics. The effects of composition, processing, and structure are detailed in articles on the physical, chemical, thermal, and mechanical properties. Other articles cover failure mechanisms such as: crazing and fracture; impact loading; fatigue failure; wear failures, moisture related failure; organic chemical related failure; photolytic degradation; and microbial degradation. Characterization of plastics in failure analysis is described with additional articles on analysis of structure, surface analysis, and fractography.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the study of polymers. Special emphasis is given to the characteristics that set polymers apart from small molecules, as studied in classic chemistry courses. The various branches of polymer science are introduced and discussed in a systematic manner, starting from basic chemical structures, continuing through supermolecular organization and physical properties. Specific examples are used throughout to illustrate how end usage relates to the principles under discussion. A series of chapters is devoted to case studies describing the principal classes of synthetic polymers. Content includes: - Polymerization - Characterization of Polymers - Rheological Description of Polymer Melts - Structural Development - Properties - Compounding and Extrusion Processes - Molding processes - Additional Methods of Manufacture - Commodity Polymers - Engineering Thermoplastics - Neat Stuff

An introduction to the rheology of polymers, with simplemath Designed for practicing scientists and engineers interested inpolymer rheology science, education, consulting, or research anddevelopment, Introduction to Polymer Rheology is acomprehensive yet accessible guide to the study of the deformationand flow of matter under applied stress. Often considered acomplicated topic for beginners, the book makes grasping thefundamentals of polymer rheology easy by presenting information inan approachable way and limiting the use of complex mathematics. Bydoing so, this introductory overview provides readers with easyaccess to the key concepts underlying the flow behavior of polymermelts, solutions, and suspensions. Incorporating sample problemsthat are worked through and explained on the page, as well asnumerous practice problems to gauge learning comprehension, thebook prepares new students and practitioners for moving on to moreadvanced concepts. Comprising twelve chapters, the book covers stress, velocity andrate of deformation, the relationship between stress and rate ofdeformation (Newtonian fluid), generalized Newtonian fluids, normalstresses and elastic behavior, experimental methods, small andlarge strain, the molecular origins of rheological behavior,elementary polymer processing concepts, quality control inrheology, and the flow of modified polymers and those withsupermolecular structure. The essential reference for accurately interpreting polymerrheology data, Introduction to Polymer Rheology providesreaders with an elementary understanding of the key issues andmodern approaches to resolving problems in the field.
