History of plastics and composites. Polymer chemistry, Tg, polymerization and elasticity. Fiber and core materials. Mechanical properties of plastic and composite materials. Industrial use of plastic and composite. Standard testing of plastic and composite. Various manufacturing processes for plastic and composite products.

Learning outcome


Students will:

-demonstrate broad knowledge and understanding of polymeric materials and the use of reinforcements in these (fiber and core materials)

-Explain monomers, polymers and plastics.

-Explain the term glass conversion temperature (Tg) and explain the kinetic and thermodynamic theories for Tg.

-Explain the properties and phases of polymeric materials by changing temperature

-Could explain the concept of polymerization degree Tg and be able to describe the hierarchical build-up of the polymerization degree of different polymers.

-Explain the evidence of viscoelasticity

-Explain simple models the influence of mixing two materials (rule of mixture)

-can sum up the most common polymers and some applications for these



The student should be able to:

-Demonstrate the most common standardized tests for polymeric materials

-Could carry out building a simple structure in the laboratory

Composite competence:

Students should:

-Describe the most common production processes for polymeric components

-Account for the historical development of plastics and composites

-To know the modern development features of plastic and composite applications
