Polymers: classification, structure, molecular weight, polymerization, crystallization, glass transition and viscoelasticity. Dynamic mechanical behavior: rheology, creep recovery and stress relaxation. Short term load behavior: tensile, flexural, and shear. Long term load behavior: creep, stress relaxation and fatigue. High speed property: impact, frictional loading and erosion. Weathering: stress cracking and aging. Plastics processing: injection molding, extrusion, blow molding and thermoforming. Product design feature: pseudo elastic design, shrinkage, weld line, residual stress and stress concentration. Injection molding: material, process, product design, mold design and mold filling and computer aided analysis. Fiber reinforced plastics: materials, compounding, part design and performance.
