High Performance Polymers : Structure, Properties, Composites, Fibers
Here is a comprehensive reference focusing on the fundamental principles involved in attaining and evaluating high performance properties in polymer systems. Written by internationally recognized authorities, each chapter aims to relate macromolecular phenomena with continuum manifestations. Super molecular organization character is considered in glassy, semicrystalline and liquid crystalline polymers. The work also presents a definitive view of how the organizational behavior of macromolecular hierarchies evolve into performing microstructures. Coupled with this treatment is an examination of the ways such entities can be brought together to accomplish a desired performance as fibers, microlaminates or composites. Techniques used to assess performance are included. As an overview of the performance principles underlying key polymeric systems, this unique work represent an essential resource for polymer scientists and engineers seeking to build on the progress of recent years.
