This book covers the strength, deformation and fracture of polymers, and how these properties are related to their chemical composition. The aim is to take the undergraduate, graduate student or industrialist through the current knowledge and understanding in this area, in a very clear, easy-to-read way that doesn't spare the detail where it is needed, but doesn't cloud with detail either.
* Provides an easy-reader style to clearly communicate important content that is often overlooked in more formal expositions.
* Explains material in terms of what molecules are and their properties, allowing the reader to "get under the hood".
* Provides an up-to-date introduction to the mechanical properties of polymers (i.e., strength, fracture and fatigue), useful to both students and industrialists.

Dr. Jason Harcup read Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge and then gained a PhD in the Mechanical Properties of Solid Polymers at the IRC In Polymer Science and Technology at Leeds University. He continued his research in the area of polymer-silicate nanocomposites at the University of Michigan, latterly writing and teaching a course on polymer deformation and fracture for graduate students. He is currently a Research Manager for Unilever Research and Development.
