Polymer Foams Handbook: Engineering and Biomechanics by Nigel Mills

By Nigel Mills

This instruction manual explores the functions of polymer foams, and the homes that lead them to compatible for therefore many purposes, within the element required by way of postgraduate scholars, researchers and the various commercial engineers and architects who paintings with polymer foam in undefined.

It covers the mechanical homes of foams and foam microstructure, processing of foams, mechanical trying out and research (using Finite aspect analysis). furthermore, it uniquely deals a broader standpoint at the real engineering of foams and foam dependent (or foam together with) items by way of together with 9 targeted case reports which firmly plant the speculation of the ebook in a true global context, making it excellent for either polymer engineers and chemists and mechanical engineers and product designers.

*Complete insurance of the mechanical and layout features of polymer foams from an said overseas professional: no different ebook is offered with this breadth making this a plastics engineer's first selection for a unmarried quantity Handbook
*Polymer foams are ubiquitous in glossy lifestyles, used in all places from trainers to furnishings, and this e-book contains 9 large case stories overlaying each one key type of software, together with biomechanics
*Offers a rigorous mechanical and microstructure viewpoint, plus a working laptop or computer established bankruptcy: crucial for engineers and architects alike.
