Structure Formation in Polymeric Fibers available in Hardcover
This book presents a comprehensive and critical review of the science of fiber formation, with special emphasis on the evolution of microstructure and its relationship to process conditions and molecular properties. The thorough discussion of the structure and properties of most types of polymeric fibers (rigid rod, flexible chain, polymer blends, and copolymers) and the different routes to fiber formation will provide the understanding necessary for solving product and process development problems, and for enhancing productivity and product performance. The book is a primary resource for all scientists and engineers involved in the research and practice of fiber formation and to students taking courses in polymer physics, polymer engineering, fiber science, and chemical engineering. It should also be of value to those interested in the general phenomena of polymer deformation, orientation, and structure development.
