Check Times, Location, and Availability Cost: No Data Given. Waitlist Code: No Data Given.

MacroMolSci 515/MSE 515. Mechanical Behavior of Solid Polymeric Materials.

Instructor(s): Albert Yee (afyee@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: MSE 457, ME 210 or 211. (3). (Excl). (BS).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

The mechanical behavior of polymers from linear viscoelastic to yield and fracture are covered. Specific topics include dynamic-mechanical relaxations, creep, yielding, crazing, fatigue, and fracture mechanics. The materials include toughened plastics, polymer alloys and blends, and composite materials. Structured design with plastics is also considered.

MacroMolSci 535/Chem. 535. Physical Chemistry of Macromolecules.

Instructor(s): Richard Robertson

Prerequisites & Distribution: Chem. 463 (or 468). (3). (Excl). (BS).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Among the topics covered are the thermodynamics of mixtures, the Flory-Huggins theory of polymer solutions, more modern theories of polymer solutions, the size and shape of macromolecular chains in solution and in bulk, rubber elasticity, polymer adsorption behavior, and polymer diffusion and scaling theories. The course begins with a short, intense review of thermodynamics, but a grounding in the subject to at least the level of Chemistry 463 (Physical Chemistry) is required. There will be a textbook. Several original papers will be assigned for study.

Check Times, Location, and Availability Cost: No Data Given. Waitlist Code: No Data Given.

MacroMolSci 536/Chem. 536. Laboratory in Macromolecular Chemistry.

Section 100 Meets with Laboratory of Chemistry 436

Instructor(s): Paul Rasmussen (pgrasmsn@umich.edu)

Prerequisites & Distribution: Chem. 535 or Phys. 418. (2). (Excl). (BS). Laboratory fee ($50) required.

Credits: (2).

Lab Fee: Laboratory fee ($50) required.
