173 Stability, Deformation and Flow in Solid Polymers

Monday, October 29, 2012: 3:15 PM
Butler East (Westin )
This session emphasizes the stability, deformation and flow behavior in solid-like polymers, including glassy and semi-crystalline polymers as well as their behavior at the nanometer size scale. Emphasis is on using rheological, mechanical and spectroscopic measurements to probe molecular response. Nonlinear constitutive descriptions are also considered.
