Polymer Mechanics - Theory & Computational Modelling is written by one of the world-leaders in computational polymer modelling. There are very few books about the mechanical behavior of polymers. There are specialized books about the material science of polymers and there are books about traditional solid mechanics or metals, but the books that focus on polymer mechanics are all incomplete or outdated. It will provide a modern view of how polymers behave, how polymers can be experimentally characterized, and how to predict the behavior of polymers in different load environments. Also discussing recent developments in the last decade and comparing them to classical theories.
Polymer Mechanics - Theory & Computational Modelling will prove to be a great reference for people in industry who want to improve their understanding of polymer mechanics. Another focus of the proposed book is to introduce and demonstrate how computational tools and simulations can be used in polymer mechanics. There are very few polymer mechanics problems that today are solved with only pen and paper. Virtually all academic research and industrial work rely heavily on finite element simulations and specialized computer software.
* Written by one of the world-leaders in computational polymer modelling
* Fills the gap for an up-to-date and complete book on polymer mechanics
* Ideal for quick reference and locating specific polymers
