Product Description


"The book will provide the reader with a very good understanding ofviscoelastic behavior on a molecular scale and details the latesttechniques..." (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine,July/August 2006)

"The book is clear written and…[is] appropriate forstudents in introductory undergraduate courses and for otherswanting introduction to the fundamentals of the subject."(CHOICE, December 2005)

"This book is invariably well written, logically organized andeasy to follow...I highly recommend this book to anyone studyingpolymer viscoelasticity." (Polymer News, December 2005)

From the Back Cover

A revised molecular approach to a classic on viscoelasticbehavior

Because viscoelasticity affects the properties, appearance,processing, and performance of polymers such as rubber, plastic,and adhesives, a proper utilization of such polymers requires aclear understanding of viscoelastic behavior.

Now in its third edition, Introduction to PolymerViscoelasticity remains a classic in the literature ofmolecular viscoelasticity, bridging the gap between primers onpolymer science and advanced research-level monographs. Assuming amolecular, rather than a mechanical approach, the text provides astrong grounding in the fundamental concepts, detailed derivations,and particular attention to assumptions, simplifications, andlimitations.

This Third Edition has been entirely revised and updatedto reflect recent developments in the field. New chaptersinclude:

  • Phenomenological Treatment of Viscoelasticity
  • Viscoelastic Models
  • Time-Temperature Correspondence
  • Transitions and Relaxation in Polymers
  • Elasticity of Rubbery Networks
  • Dielectric and NMR Methods

With detailed explanations, corresponding equations, andexperimental methods, supported by real-life applications (as wellas the inclusion of a CD-ROM with data to support the exercises),this Third Edition provides today's students andprofessionals with the tools they need to create polymers with moredesirable qualities than ever.
