Editorial Reviews

An industry reference on applied and advanced techniques in polymer processing. It provides some fundamental discussion of rheological properties and concepts, but is largely directed toward more rigorous guidance in processability. The volume contains 27 chapters by international practitioners on advanced subjects of industry concern, and in many discussions the relationships between polymer structural and molecular characteristics are explored in relation to processing properties. Among the specific topics are hydrodynamics of nonspherical particles in non-Newtonian fluids; influence of powder morphology on paste flow; and theory of rubber rheology. Annotation c.
