EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Very few polymer mechanics problems are solved with only pen and paper today, and virtually all academic research and industrial work relies heavily on finite element simulations and specialized computer software. Introducing and demonstrating the utility of computational tools and simulations, Mechanics of Solid Polymers provides a modern view of how solid polymers behave, how they can be experimentally characterized, and how to predict their behavior in different load environments. Reflecting the significant progress made in the understanding of polymer behaviour over the last two decades, this book will discuss recent developments and compare them to classical theories. The book shows how best to make use of commercially available finite element software to solve polymer mechanics problems, introducing readers to the current state of the art in predicting failure using a combination of experiment and computational techniques. Case studies and example Matlab code are also included. As industry and academia are increasingly reliant on advanced computational mechanics software to implement sophisticated constitutive models – and authoritative information is hard to find in one place - this book provides engineers with what they need to know to make best use of the technology available. Helps professionals deploy the latest experimental polymer testing methods to assess suitability for applications Discusses material models for different polymer types Shows how to best make use of available finite element software to model polymer behaviour, and includes case studies and example code to help engineers and researchers apply it to their work

Mechanics Of Viscoelastic Solids
Author: Aleksey D. Drozdov
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Release Date: 1998-03-06
Pages: 472
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book focuses on the mechanical response in viscoelastic media under isothermal and nonisothermal conditions. The viscoelastic response covered in this book is observed in a wide variety of common materials: polymers and plastics, metals and alloys at elevated temperatures, concrete, soils, road construction and building materials, biological tissues, and foodstuffs. Emphasizing the mechanical behavior of solid polymers subjected to physical aging, the book analyzes constitutive equations in thermoviscoelasticity and compares the results of numerical simulation with experimental data. After covering linear viscoelastic media at small strains, a clear approach to nonlinear constitutive equations in viscoelasticity at small strains and at finite strains is developed. The book concludes with coverage of constitutive relations in thermoviscoelasticity which account for thermally-induced changes both in elastic moduli and relaxation spectra. Written for specialists in mechanical and chemical engineering in the fields of manufacturing polymer and polymer-composite articles, this book will also appeal to specialists in applied and industrial mathematics, mechanics of continua and polymer physics who study the response of solid polymers to thermomechanical stimuli.

Solid Mechanics

Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Release Date: 2010-03-22
Pages: 262
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This is a textbook for courses in civil and mechanical engineering that are commonly called Strength of Materials or Mechanics of Materials. The intent of this book is to provide a background in the mechanics of solids for students of mechanical engineering, while limiting the information on why materials behave as they do. It is assumed that the students have already had courses covering materials science and basic statics. Much of the material is drawn from another book by the author, Mechanical Behavior of Materials. To make the text suitable for mechanical engineers, the chapters on slip, dislocations, twinning, residual stresses, and hardening mechanisms have been eliminated and the treatment of ductility viscoelasticity, creep, ceramics, and polymers has been simplified.

The Physics Of Deformation And Fracture Of Polymers
Author: A. S. Argon
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Release Date: 2013-03-07
Pages:
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Demonstrating through examples, this book presents a mechanism-based perspective on the broad range of deformation and fracture response of solid polymers. It draws on the results of probing experiments and considers the similar mechanical responses of amorphous metals and inorganic compounds to develop advanced methodology for generating more precise forms of modelling. This, in turn, provides a better fundamental understanding of deformation and fracture phenomena in solid polymers. Such mechanism-based constitutive response forms have far-reaching application potential in the prediction of structural responses and in tailoring special microstructures for tough behaviour. Moreover, they can guide the development of computational codes for deformation processing of polymers at any level. Applications are wide-ranging, from large strain industrial deformation texturing to production of precision micro-fluidic devices, making this book of interest to both advanced graduate students and to practising professionals.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Elasticity, plasticity, damage mechanics and cracking are all phenomena that determine the resistance of solids to deformation and fracture. The authors of this book discuss a modern method of mathematically modeling the behavior of macroscopic volume elements. The first three chapters review physical mechanisms at the microstructural level, thermodynamics of irreversible processes, mechanics of continuous media, and the classification of the behavior of solids. The rest of the book is devoted to the modeling of different types of material behavior. In each case the authors present characteristic data for numerous materials, and discuss the physics underlying the phenomena together with methods for the numerical analysis of the resulting equations.

Using simple fundamentals, the author shows how the basic principles of one polymer group can be applied to all of the other groups. He covers synthesis and polymerization reactions, reactivities, techniques for characterization and analysis, energy absorption and thermal conductivity, physical and optical properties, and practical applications. This edition also addresses environmental concerns and green polymeric materials, including biodegradable polymers and microorganisms for synthesizing materials. Brief case studies are woven within the text as historical accounts to illustrate various developments and the societal and scientific contexts in which these changes occurred. Introduction to Polymer Chemistry, Second Edition remains the premier text for understanding the behavior of polymers while offering new material on environmental science. Building on undergraduate work in foundational courses, the text fulfills the American Chemical Society Committee on Professional Training (ACS CPT) in-depth course requirement.

Finite Elasticity And Viscoelasticity
Author: Aleksey D. Drozdov
Publisher: World Scientific
Release Date: 1996-01-01
Pages: 434
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book provides a systematic and self-consistent introduction to the nonlinear continuum mechanics of solids, from the main axioms to comprehensive aspects of the theory. The objective is to expose the most intriguing aspects of elasticity and viscoelasticity with finite strains in such a way as to ensure mathematical correctness, on the one hand, and to demonstrate a wide spectrum of physical phenomena typical only of nonlinear mechanics, on the other.A novel aspect of the book is that it contains a number of examples illustrating surprising behaviour in materials with finite strains, as well as comparisons between theoretical predictions and experimental data for rubber-like polymers and elastomers.The book aims to fill a gap between mathematicians specializing in nonlinear continuum mechanics, and physicists and engineers who apply the methods of solid mechanics to a wide range of problems in civil and mechanical engineering, materials science, and polymer physics. The book has been developed from a graduate course in applied mathematics which the author has given for a number of years.
