WILEY - Introduction to Polymer Viscoelasticity
|Publication Date:||1 July 2018|
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
