Plastics, rubber, and their composites are increasingly finding new applications in engineering, both as replacements for traditional materials and in completely new developments. Automobile, aerospace, building, electronic, and marine engineering all show the influence of the plastics revolution. The modern engineer needs a good working knowledge of both polymer engineering and metallurgy if he is to be fully effective. This book is aimed at undergraduate and postgraduate students of engineering and materials science. It shows first why plastics and rubbers have such distinctive properties, and how they are affected by temperature, strain rate, and other factors. The second half of the book concentrates on the ways in which these properties can be exploited to produce functional components that fulfil the demands placed upon them in the most effective manner. The engineering principles are carefully presented, and illustrated by well-chosen model calculations and examples. First-degree and postgraduate students and teachers of mechanical, chemical, and civil engineering, and materials science; practising engineers on mid-career training courses in plastics, rubbers, or composite materials.
