Polymer Process Engineering
An overview of both the engineering and science required for polymer systems design. This text examines the composition, morphology, properties and physical states of polymers as well as quantitative analytical methods and surveys of processes. It also analyzes the engineering of polymer systems including reaction kinetics, property measurements, characterization and flow, and mechanical properties.
