Chapter 15: Characteristics & Applications of Polymers ISSUES TO ADDRESS... What are the tensile properties of polymers and how are they affected by basic microstructural features ? Hardening, anisotropy, and annealing in polymers. How does the elevated temperature mechanical response of polymers compare to ceramics and metals?
