357 Mechanics and Structure in Polymers

Tuesday, November 10, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
251A (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Description:
This session seeks papers covering both experimental and theoretical aspects of polymers, with a focus on relating dynamics, structure, processsing, and properties of homopolymers in their glassy, amorphous or semi-crystalline state. We additionally seek papers covering both experimental and theoretical aspects of polymers, with a focus on relating mechanics, dynamics, structure, processing, and properties of blends and copolymers. ***Note to faculty candidates: please include a note to the session chair during submission to alert them to your status*** +++Note: this session will be sorted jointly with Structure and Properties in Polymers. Authors may submit to either session.+++
