How to predict thermoplastics behavior in high-performance structural applications Here's the very first engineering resource with all the data and design/analysis techniques you need to work with even the newest thermoplastics. Structural Analysis of Thermoplastic Components by Gerry Trantina and Ron Nimmer shows you how to predict stiffness, creep and fatigue of polymeric components--PLUS non-homogeneous materials such as structural foams and composites. You'll benefit from detailed comparisons of analytic prediction versus measured behavior and much more: Nonstandard property measurement and analysis; Nonlinearities associated with large deformations; Using structural geometry to offset low material stiffness; Designing thermoplastics to withstand impacts; Important loading variables, component lifetimes, frequency effects, hysteric heating and cyclic crack growth.

``This comprehensive guide allows readers to improve their engineering design analysis skills. It offers specific analysis techniques, detailed discussions of mechanical behavior and the latest structural design techniques. It Includes a general discussion of finite element analysis with special emphasis on geometric and meterial nonlinearities. In addition, there are numerous examples that illustrate how well thermoplastic behavior can be predicted'' (Designfax 1994-10-01)
