This new book explores the consideration of relationships that connect the structural and basic mechanical properties of polymeric mediums within the frameworks of fractal analysis with cluster model representations attraction. Incidentally, the choice of any structural model of medium or their combinations is defined by expediency and further usag

About the Authors

G. V. Kozlov, DSc, is a senior scientist at UNIID of Kabardino-Balkarian State University in Nal'chik, Russia, during 1981-1994 and from 1997 until now. His scientific interests include the structural grounds of properties of polymeric materials of all classes and states, including the physics of polymers, polymer solutions and melts, and composites and nanocomposites. He has proposed to consider polymers as natural nanocomposites. He is the author of more than 1500 scientific publications, including 30 books, published in Russia, Ukraine, Great Britain, German Federal Republic, Holland, and USA.

Yurii Grigor'evich Yanovskii, DSc, is director of Institute of Applied Mechanics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia. He is a specialist in the field of physics and chemistry of polymers, composites, and polymer materials. The majority of his publications are concerned with the mechanical properties of polymers. He is contributor of 1000 original papers as well as many reviews. He has published more than 100 books.
