Description

Strength and Failure of Visco-Elastic Materials covers the whole spectrum of durability of visco-elastic materials. The title details the contemporary state of the problems and the results of the studies done in the area of visco-elastic materials science. The text covers materials such as polymers, rubbers, and elastomers. The selection tackles visco-elastic problems, such as kinetic failures, corrosion, static fatigue, and deformation. Variables such as molecular weight and orientation, structure, environments, strain rate, and action are also discussed. The book will be of great use to students, researchers, and practitioners of materials science.
