MCEN 6184 - Structure and Properties of Polymers uri icon



  • Emphasizes the relationship between molecular structure and macroscopic properties. Structural aspects include chain conformation, configuration, and the crystalline and amorphous states. Discusses physical and mechanical properties with a focus on solution and phase behavior, transitions of bulk polymers, and rubber and viscoelastic behavior. Requires background in basic material science and polymer related concepts.
