Book Description

January 23, 2013 1926895355 978-1926895352

Through a balanced combination of theory and experiments, this book provides a detailed overview of the main and most up-to-date advances in the area of polymeric materials. Because the subject is essentially interdisciplinary and brings together scientists and engineers with different educational backgrounds, the book offers a research-oriented exposition of the fundamentals as well.

The book is based on the editors’ and authors’ extensive experience in research, development, and education in the field of materials science, and especially polymer testing, polymer diagnostics, and failure analysis. A comprehensive coverage of the methods of polymer testing is provided along with the results of the authors’ work on deformation and fracture behavior of polymers.

This book will be useful to faculty as well as advanced-level students in materials science, materials technology, plastic technology, mechanical engineering, process engineering, and chemical engineering.

1.0 out of 5 stars Multicomponenet January 29, 2013
By Swneson
I have not seen original publications of the editors on the subject of the book in the medium- or even in the low impact scientific journals. How can they edit such a book?

I strongly recommend ignoring this compilation.

There are approximately 350 books which are authored (co-authored, edited, co-edited) by Zaikov. This is a very impressive number.

An immediate question pops up: What is the quality of such books?

Let anyone make an educated guess.

We will note only that Renaissance man Zaikov covers all possible chemistry-related topics: quantum chemistry, nanochemistry, nanotechnology, organic, inorganic, physical, polymer chemistry, photochemistry, radiation chemistry, thermodynamics, material science, catalysis, food chemistry, and medicinal chemistry. It is interesting that prolific writer Zaikov is at the cutting edge of almost all of these sciences.
