EN540 460 - Polymer Physics

Description
This course will cover the physics aspect of macromolecular/polymeric materials. We will discuss the molecular origin of key physical phenomena, such as chain relaxation, time temperature superposition, free volume, high strain rate behavior, phase transitions, flow and fracture as well as physical aging. Many real world examples will be used throughout the course. We will also discuss the recent advances in biopolymers, polymers for 3D printing, electro-spinning and polymers for tissue engineering. Students should have introductory training in Materials Science.
