|| The course includes; statistics of polymer chain, interfacial polymer force, Florry-Huggun theory.
A major objective of this course is to provide a background in polymerizations, polymer structures and polymer properties. The material in this course also covers polymer characterization, polymer rheology and polymer processing. In addition, structures, properties, usages and products of rubbers, plastics and fibers are emphasized and compared. The object of this course is also to provide a background in fiber compositions, synthesis, spinning and characterization. A second goal is to introduce factors that influence fiber compositions, formation and properties.
