Largely Unrecognized Features of Polymer Crystallization Under Conditions of Heat Transfer and Flow

  • H. Janeschitz-Kriegl


Basic ideas of polymer crystallization, rheology and heat transfer are integrated into a description of the fundamentals of the industrial solidification processes in thermoplastic materials. Aspects of texturing are included.
