Modeling and Simulation in Polymers
P. D. Gujrati, A. I. Leonov (eds.), Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim, 2010, 546 p., hardcover, EUR 149.00, ISBN 978-3-527-32415-6
The book Modeling and Simulation in Polymers begins with a look at computational viscoelastic fluid mechanics and studies of turbulent flows of dilute polymer solutions. It then goes on to discuss simulations of nanocomposites, polymerisation kinetics, computational approaches for polymers and modelling polyelectrolytes. Further sections deal with tyre optimisation, irreversible phenomena in polymers, the hydrodynamics of artificial and bacterial flagella, as well as modelling and simulation in liquid crystals. The book is recommended for polymer and theoretical chemists, materials scientists, and plastics technologists.
