Treatise on Materials Science and Technology, Volume 10: Properties of Solid Polymeric Materials, Part B covers knowledge in critical areas of polymeric materials. The book discusses the anisotropie elastic behavior of crystalline polymers; the mechanical properties of glassy polymers; and the fatigue behavior of engineering polymers. The text also describes the electronic properties of polymers; electric breakdown in polymers; and environmental degradation. People working in some area of polymer materials science will find the book useful.
