MAT E 453: Physical and Mechanical Properties of Polymers
(2-3) Cr. 3. F.
Prereq: MAT E 214, MAT E 351
Overview of polymer chemical composition, microstructure, thermal and mechanical properties, rheology, and principles of polymer materials selection. Intensive laboratory experiments include chemical composition studies, microstructural characterization, thermal analysis, and mechanical testing.
For the undergraduate curriculum in materials engineering leading to the degree bachelor of science. The Materials Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/ . Materials engineering is a broadly-based discipline relating the composition, structure, and processing of materials to their properties, uses and performance. Materials engineering includes a variety of traditional and modern technologies involving metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, and electronic materials.
