Mechanics of polymers

The objective of the course is to provide basic theoretical knowledge to students and to familiarise them with basic principles in the field of polymer physics and mechanics that are required to understand their properties and behaviour. Students extend their theoretical knowledge of polymers. The main purpose and objective of the course is to present basic principles of the polymer physics structurally and informatively, to link experiments to theory and to present several important theories (glass transition, rubberelastic state, crystallisation). The course contents are fundamental to the study of oriented polymers and technology as well as to the understanding of their properties.
Specific knowledge:

  • knowledge of various physical states and phenomena characteristic of polymers,
  • knowledge of experimental techniques in polymer physics,
  • familiarity with up-to-date knowledge of partly crystalline polymers,
  • ability to apply theoretical knowledge of polymer physics in the field of structure, morphology and properties in the interpretation of the behaviour of materials at various environmental conditions,
  • ability to link the properties of polymers to the supramolecular and morphological structure under the influence of factors arising during the production and use of polymers and end products,
  • familiarity with various application possibilities of oriented polymers in different areas,
  • ability to critically estimate professional literature
