This book gives an overview of recent advances in the fracture mechanics of polymers (experimental and alternative methods), morphology property correlations (homopolymers, copolymers, blends), hybrid methods for polymer testing and polymer diagnostics, and biocompatible materials and medical prostheses, as well as application examples and limits. The investigation of deformation and fracture behaviour using the experimental methods of fracture mechanics has been the subject of intense research during the last decade. In a systematic manner, each chapter of this book gives a review of the particular aspects. This book will be of great value to scientists, engineers and graduates in polymer materials science.Review:
From the reviews of the first edition:
"This book is published in the ‘Engineering Materials’ series intended to provide materials to scientists and engineers in research and development with topical information on structure, properties, manufacturing, and applications. ... Although the book is a conference/workshop proceeding, the lectures are thoughtfully re-written with some additional contributions and well produced to give the book a longer shelf life. ... It will ... serve as a valuable reference because it provides a snapshot of the current status ... ." (N. Sanjeeva Murthy, Polymer News, Vol. 27 (11), 2002)
"The book under review is composed of lectures presented at the Merseburg Discussion Conference with several additional contributions ... . the present book is definitely a reference book. This reviewer sees to different audiences to which the book will be of interest – practical engineers designing and researching structures using polymeric materials, and theoreticians working in fracture mechanics. ... The quality of publication is good ... . Deformation and Fracture Behavior of Polymers is recommended to all large technical libraries." (GI Barenblatt, Applied Mechanics Reviews, Vol. 56 (1), 2003)
"The book describes recent progress in basic and applied research into the deformation and fracture behaviour of polymers, blends, copolymers, composites and biocompatible materials. ... Taking into account recent trends in this field, the contribution of a large number of specialists from Germany, Austria, Poland and Czechia collected in one volume can be very useful for further developments and information, thus stimulating the theoretical activity in different branches of mechanics, and especially in fracture and damage analysis, in plasticity, viscoplasticity, etc.” (M. Misicu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 978, 2002)
