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.

Editorial Reviews

`Rheology of Filled Polymer Systems will be of most interest to those involved in injection molding and similar processes. [...]if you are interested in molding processes, and especially in the theoretical background, then this book is for you. [...]The main feature which distinguishes this book from others on polymer rheology is its focus on filled systems. The addition of fillers (particles, fibers, flakes, etc.) makes such systems behave much differently than unfilled polymers. [...]the writing is quite good [...] Shenoy does a good job of presenting data for a variety of systems, explaining the trends intuitively, and then showing how it all fits in with the theories developed earlier in the book.'
