From the Publisher
This two-volume work is detailed enough to serve as a text and comprehensive enough to stand as a reference. Volume 1, Fluid Mechanics, summarizes the key experiments that show how polymeric fluids differ from structurally simple fluids, then presents, in rough historical order, various methods for solving polymer fluid dynamics problems. Volume 2, Kinetic Theory, uses molecular models and the methods of statistical mechanics to obtain relations between bulk flow behavior and polymer structure. Includes end-of-chapter problems and extensive appendixes.
From the Inside Flap
Having established itself as a standard work in the decade since its original publication, Dynamics of Polymeric Liquids now appears in a second, updated edition. Volume One addresses the continuum aspects of polymer fluid dynamics and rheology. Its careful attention to the experimental basis of polymer fluid dynamics is unparalleled. The basic foundations of Newtonian and non-Newtonian behavior are explained early in the text, making the treatment accessible to beginners. More advanced material, such as nonlinear constitutive equations and detailed continuum mechanics, is presented later. Throughout, problem-solving is stressed, and the entire text has been extensively classroom-tested. This second edition features new material on differential models, integral models, rheometry, and the solution of polymer flow and heat transfer problems. There is increased coverage of the use of stream function methods, variational methods, Deborah number use in flow problems, and more. Extensive tables in the appendices allow readers to focus on problem-solving without getting bogged down in routine mathematical details. In addition, volumes One and Two are extensively cross-referenced, thereby drawing a strong connection between the molecular and continuum points of view. Many worked-out illustrative examples and graded problems make this book useful for self-study. Chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, polymer scientists and engineers, rheologists, and fluid dynamicists will find Dynamics of Polymeric Liquids an important and valuable resource.
