VM517 – Mechanical Properties of Polymers


Credits: 3 credits

Pre-requisites: Me211

Degree Program:

Terms Offered: Spring


The mechanical behavior of polymers from linear viscoelastic to yield and fracture are covered. Specific topics include dynamic-mechanical relaxations, creep, yielding, craz-ing, fatigue, and fracture mechanics. The materials include toughened plastics, polymer alloys and blends, and composite materials. Structured design with plastics is also considered.
