This reference book on engineering plastics provides practical and comprehensive coverage on how the performance of plastics is characterized during design, property testing, and failure analysis. The fundamental structure and properties of plastics are reviewed for and information describes the important design factors, properties, and failure mechanisms of plastics. The effects of composition, processing, and structure are detailed on the physical, chemical, thermal, and mechanical properties.
Also covered are failure mechanisms such as:
Characterization of plastics in failure analysis is described with information on analysis of structure, surface analysis, and fractography.
