This introduction offers well-ordered coverage of the major topics related to the mechanical properties of plastics. It provides: clear examples of the data needed for the analysis of plastics behaviour and engineering applications; the background required to understand developments in plastics engineering; and state-of-the-art results.


"The later chapters on the mechanical and fracture behavior of polymers provides a good starting point for anyone interested in these topics. "

---Glass Technology

"The book covers all the aspects of plastics materials in general and composites in particular, in a very precise way, but without losing sight of any important and significant aspects. . . The book is strongly recommended to students, engineers as well as users of plastics. "

---Popular Plastics & Packaging
