Polymers for Vibration Damping Applications (PDF) is a comprehensive guide on the use of polymers and polymer composites for vibration and shock damping. The ebook commences with two chapters that introduce the fundamentals of both vibration and shock damping. The next part of the ebook presents in-depth coverage of polymeric materials for vibration damping, including the design of polymer systems, viscoelastic properties, and modes and applications. Ultimately, measurement techniques are discussed in detail. Throughout the ebook, the different perspectives of materials and engineering are reasoned, and both conceptual and mathematical approaches are used.

This is a vital resource for all those looking to understand the application of polymers for vibration damping, including scientists, researchers and advanced students in polymer science, plastics engineering, mechanical and materials science engineering, as well as engineers and R&D personnel in the automotive, defense, marine and construction industries.

  • Prepares the reader with a complete, fundamental understanding of vibration and shock damping
  • Includes cutting-edge research on the utilization of polymers for advanced civil and defense applications
  • Describes the viscoelastic properties, design, and applications of polymeric materials for vibration damping applications.
