Rheology of Filled Polymer Systems

Rheology of Filled Polymer Systems

by A.V. Shenoy

Book Description
The rheology of filled polymer systems is an ever expanding field in the polymer industry today. Using a concise, practical and simple format this comprehensive work explains the concepts behind filled polymer systems and the rheological techniques involved in studying their behaviour. Aware that the readers of the book may come from differing background, the first three chapters familiarize the reader with the basics about polymers, fillers and physicochemical interactions between them, rheology and rheometry. Covering such topics as preparation of filled polymer systems, steady shear viscous properties and extentional flow properties, this book covers the areas of importance from an introductory level through to more complex issues.

Book Info

Thermoplastic Melt Rheology and Processing (Plastics Engineering, 37) (Hardcover)

By Aroon Shenoy

Book Description
Presents rheological data on a number of polymers, making use of the master curve approach to determine unified curves for each generic type of polymer. The text offers a step-by-step procedure for developing a speadsheet computer program to obtain accurate thermoplastic rheograms at any tempertature without using sophisticated rheometres. It includes possible correlations of melt flow index with various parameters involved in polymer manufacture, product fabrication and property evaluation.

Struts Survival Guide: Basics to Best Practices (J2ee Survival Series)

by Srikanth Shenoy, Nithin Mallya
The book is available at

Book Description
Struts is the most popular MVC framework used for J2EE web application development. This book covers the Struts architecture and basics such as data validation, tags and I18N.

In addition, it covers a lot of tips, strategies and best practices for Struts based application design and development, many of them not found elsewhere. It tells you how to fill the gaps in Struts and what features are important in J2EE projects.

The book provides a robust exception handling strategy that is production-ready. You will learn how to edit List based forms in Struts. You will also see how to use Paging framework with Struts and neat tricks. You will see when does customizing Struts really make sense in real projects.
