Advanced reviews for Polymer Materials
"Molecular modeling of polymers ... is a subject that cannot be
found in any other book] in any appreciable detail. ... T]he
detailed chapters on specific polymer systems is a great idea."
-- Gregory Odegard, Michigan Technological University
"The polymer community needs a text book which can connect the
macroscopic mechanics with mesoscopic and molecular aspects of

This book takes a unique, multi-scale approach to the mechanical
properties of polymers, covering both the macroscopic and molecular
levels unlike any other book on the market. Based on the authors'
extensive research and writing in the field, Polymer Materials
emphasizes the relationships between the chemical structure and the
mechanical behavior of polymer materials, providing authoritative
guidelines for assessing polymer performance under different
conditions and the design of new materials.
Key features of this book include: Experimental results on
selected examples precede and reinforce the development of
theoretical featuresIn-depth discussions of a limited number of
polymer systems instead of a brief overview of manySelf-contained
chapters with a summary of their key pointsComprehensive problems
and a solutions manual for the different parts of the bookCoverage
of the basics with an emphasis on polymer dynamics
An indispensable resource for polymer scientists and students
alike, Polymer Materials is also highly useful for material
scientists, engineers, chemists, and physicists in industry and
