  3. 3. Diffusion, Swelling and Mechanical Properties of Polymers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fiber- och polymerteknologi

    Author : Janis Ritums; [2004]
    Keywords : diffusion; swelling; mechanical properties; polymers;

    Abstract : Polymers capability to withstand harmful interactions withdifferent environments can be determined by looking at thetransport and mechanical properties of the material exposed tothe medium. The diffusion of a penetrant in a polymer and itsswelling characteristics can be verified by a simplesorption-desorption experiment followed by methodical analysisof the data. READ MORE
