This book provides the background needed to understand not only the wide field of polymer processing, but also the emerging technologies associated with the plastics industry in the 21st century. It combines practical engineering concepts with modeling of realistic polymer processes. It provides the reader with a solid knowledge base in polymer materials, polymer processing, and modeling.
Understanding Polymer Processing is intended for the person who is entering the plastics manufacturing industry and as a textbook for students taking an introductory course in polymer processing. It also serves as a guide to the practicing engineer when choosing a process, determining important parameters and factors during the early stages of process design, and when optimizing such a process. Practical examples illustrating basic concepts are presented throughout the book.
New in the second edition is a chapter on additive manufacturing, together with associated examples, many new problems to test the reader’s understanding, as well as improvements and corrections throughout the book.
