MAT E 453: Physical and Mechanical Properties of Polymer

Overview of polymer chemical composition, microstructure, thermal and mechanical properties, rheology, and principles of polymer materials selection. Intensive laboratory experiments include chemical composition studies, microstructure characterization, thermal analsysis, and mechanical testing.

This class is completely re-designed with new lectures and labs in Fall 2016. The focus is on more advanced polymer physics and mechanical properties, with the empahsis of the commercial application. The lab is a completely new set of experiments based on commercial paints. In addition to the exam and lab report, the class also gives the students opportunity to impove their prensentation skills with the poster and oral presentation session.
