Thoroughly revised edition of the classic text on polymer processing The Second Edition brings the classic text on polymer processing thoroughly up to date with the latest fundamental developments in polymer processing, while retaining the critically acclaimed approach of the First Edition. Readers are provided with the complete panorama of polymer processing, starting with fundamental concepts through the latest current industry practices and future directions. All the chapters have been revised and updated, and four new chapters have been added to introduce the latest developments. Readers familiar with the First Edition will discover a host of new material, including: * Blend and alloy microstructuring * Twin screw-based melting and chaotic mixing mechanisms * Reactive processing * Devolatilization--theory, mechanisms, and industrial practice * Compounding--theory and industrial practice * The increasingly important role of computational fluid mechanics * A systematic approach to machine configuration design The Second Edition expands on the unique approach that distinguishes it from comparative texts. Rather than focus on specific processing methods, the authors assert that polymers have a similar experience in any processing machine and that these experiences can be described by a set of elementary processing steps that prepare the polymer for any of the shaping methods. On the other hand, the authors do emphasize the unique features of particular polymer processing methods and machines, including the particular elementary step and shaping mechanisms and geometrical solutions. Replete with problem sets and a solutions manual for instructors, this textbook is recommended for undergraduate and graduate students in chemical engineering and polymer and materials engineering and science. It will also prove invaluable for industry professionals as a fundamental polymer processing analysis and synthesis reference.

Exploring Canework in Polymer Clay: Color, Pattern and Surface Design gives jewelry makers in-depth instruction in polymer clay cane making. Beginning with polymer clay basics and color theory for pleasing combinations in canework, the book also provides detailed lessons in constructing, reducing, and repeating patterns in canes as well as how to use canes to create repeating patterns for larger surface design. The book teaches eight unique cane styles, and a variety of ways to incorporate cane patterns into sophisticated finished jewelry. Techniques include striped, checkerboard, spiral, bull’s eye, kaleidoscope, floral, combination, and translucent overlay canes. Detailed step-by-step instructions and clear process photography for each cane styleguide readers of any skill level. Lessons are followed by vibrant jewelry -- necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pendants, or brooches -- incorporating the pattern just taught. A stunning and inspirational gallery of finished jewelry, all designed by award-winning author Patricia Kimle, completes this beautiful book.

Provides the tools needed to master and apply thefundamentals of polymer crystallography Using core concepts in physics, chemistry, polymer science andengineering, this book sheds new light on the complex field ofpolymer crystallography, enabling readers to evaluate polymercrystallization data and determine the best methods to use fortheir investigations. The authors set forth a variety of tested andproven methods for analyzing ordered and disordered structures inpolymer crystals, including X-ray diffraction, electrondiffraction, and microscopy. In addition to the basics, the bookexplores several advanced and emerging topics in the field such assymmetry breaking, frustration, and the principle of density-drivenphase formation. Crystals and Crystallinity in Polymers introduces two newconcepts in crystallinity and crystals in synthetic polymers.First, crystallinity in polymeric materials is compatible with theabsence of true three-dimensional long-range order. Second, thedisorder may be described as a structural feature, using themethods of X-ray scattering and electron diffraction analysis. The book begins by introducing the basic principles and methodsfor building structural models for the conformation of polymercrystal chains. Next, it covers: Packing of macromolecules in polymer crystals Methods for extracting structural parameters from diffractiondata Defects and disorder in polymer crystals Analytical methods for diffuse scattering from disorderedpolymer structures Crystal habit Influence of crystal defects and structural disorder on thephysical and mechanical properties of polymeric materials Crystals and Crystallinity in Polymers examines all thepossible types of structural disorder generally present in polymercrystals and describes the influence of each kind of disorder onX-ray and electron diffraction patterns. Its comprehensive, expertcoverage makes it possible for readers to learn and apply thefundamentals of polymer crystallography to solve a broad range ofproblems.

The fourth Nishinomiya-Yukawa Memorial Symposium, devoted to the topic of dynamics and patterns in complex fluids, was held on October 26 and 27, 1989, in Nishinomiya City, Japan, where ten invited speakers gave their lectures. A one-day meeting, comprising short talks and poster sessions, was then held on the same topic on October 28 at the Research Institute for Fundamental Physics, Kyoto University. The present volume contains the 10 invited papers and 38 contributed papers presented at these two meetings. The symposium was sponsored by Nishinomiya City, where Prof. Hideki Yukawa once lived and where he wrote the celebrated paper describing the work that was later honored by a Nobel prize. The topic of the fourth symposium was chosen from one of the most vigorously evolving and highly interdisciplinary fields in condensed matter physics. The field of complex fluids is very diverse and still in its infancy and, as a result, the definition of a complex fluid varies greatly from one researcher to the next. One of the objectives of the symposium was to clarify its definition by explicitly posing a number of potentially rich problems waiting to be explored. Indeed, experimentalists are disclosing a variety of intriguing dynamical phenomena in complex systems such as polymers, liquid crystals, gels, colloids, and surfactant systems. We, the organizers, hope that the symposium will contribute to the increasing importance of the field in the coming years.

Polymers have proven to be very suitable materials for topographic structuring, in particular in nanoreplication processes. Micro- and Nanografting strategies address the possibility for the formation of chemical patterns and structures on or in polymeric substrates using relatively simple processes. Polymer Micro- and Nanografting focuses on grafting techniques characterization and applications for the particular combination of polymer layers on polymer substrates. The authors, leaders in this area of research, provide a comprehensive survey on polymer-on-polymer grafting, covering the latest developments and future applications.

Filling the gap for a reference dedicated to the characterization of polymer blends and their micro and nano morphologies, this book provides comprehensive, systematic coverage in a one-stop, two-volume resource for all those working in the field. Leading researchers from industry and academia, as well as from government and private research institutions around the world summarize recent technical advances in chapters devoted to their individual contributions. In so doing, they examine a wide range of modern characterization techniques, from microscopy and spectroscopy to diffraction, thermal analysis, rheology, mechanical measurements and chromatography. These methods are compared with each other to assist in determining the best solution for both fundamental and applied problems, paying attention to the characterization of nanoscale miscibility and interfaces, both in blends involving copolymers and in immiscible blends. The thermodynamics, miscibility, phase separation, morphology and interfaces in polymer blends are also discussed in light of new insights involving the nanoscopic scale. Finally, the authors detail the processing-morphology-property relationships of polymer blends, as well as the influence of processing on the generation of micro and nano morphologies, and the dependence of these morphologies on the properties of blends. Hot topics such as compatibilization through nanoparticles, miscibility of new biopolymers and nanoscale investigations of interfaces in blends are also addressed. With its application-oriented approach, handpicked selection of topics and expert contributors, this is an outstanding survey for anyone involved in the field of polymer blends for advanced technologies.
