Emphasizing fundamental concepts that allow a student, novice, or practicing engineer to carry out practical design decisions, "Polymer Processing: Principles and Design" provides the numerical methods required to solve the equations using a computer and easy-to-use IMSL numerical subroutines, ensuring a solid foundation in the principles underlying the design of polymer processing techniques. Presenting the background required to design processes for thermoplastics, this thoroughly updated second edition adds a "Green Engineering" component and a CD with numerical subroutines guidance to using Matlab, Mathematica, and Excel to solve processing problems.
