Book description

Most of the shaping in the manufacture of polymeric objects is carried out in the melt state, as it is a substantial part of the physical property development. Melt processing involves an interplay between fluid mechanics and heat transfer in rheologically complex liquids, and taken as a whole it is a nice example of the importance of coupled transport processes. This book is on the underlying foundations of polymer melt processing, which can be derived from relatively straightforward ideas in fluid mechanics and heat transfer; the level is that of an advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate course, and the material can serve as the text for a course in polymer processing or for a second course in transport processes.


'I have always admired Denn's ability to write authoritative and straightforward student texts on applied fluid mechanics … I urge every research worker in polymer processing to have a copy to hand …'

'… a pedagogical masterpiece … It is highly recommended to all graduate students and researchers in polymer processing. It would also be useful to be read by process engineers working in industry, who are frequently confused and bewildered by the avalanche of equations found in the literature, which is mostly written by academics.’

'I highly recommend this book. It can be used as a textbook for a course in polymer processing for advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students as well as a reference book for engineers and scientists who are interested in polymer processing. All readers will find it easy to read, interesting, authoritative, thoughtful and instructive.'
