Toughened Plastics I
Science and EngineeringBook - 1993
Presents an authoritative overview of the field, reviewing current developments in the science and engineering of toughened plastics. Covers recent developments in many areas of the toughening of plastics, including the basic chemistry involved, the relationship between microstructure (morphology) of the materials and the resulting enhancement in toughness and mechanical properties, principles of fracture mechanics, and theories of failure mechanisms. Reviews critically the multidisciplinary studies and applications of toughened plastics, including formulation, compounding, processing, etc. A valuable reference source for the aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, construction, and electronic industries.
