WILEY - Introduction to Polymer Viscoelasticity

Organization: WILEY
Publication Date: 1 July 2018
Page Count: 376

Completely revised and updated, the fourth edition of this classic text continues to offer the reader a thorough understanding of viscoelastic behavior, essential for the proper utilization of polymers.

Explains principles, corresponding equations, and experimental methods with supporting reallife applications

Adds coverage of measurement techniques (nanoindentation, atomic force microscopy (AFM), and diffusing wave spectroscopy (DWS)), biopolymer viscoelasticity, and the relationship between mechanical polymer properties and viscoelastic functions

Has two new ections to address modern areas of viscoelastic measurement: large amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) and microrheology

Includes problems in the text and an Instructor's Manual (including solutions) available for adopting professors
