The authors of this book on the evaluation of mechanical and fracture properties of plastics apparently had extensive experience on the subject during their association with ICI’s research department. As per the Preface by an unspecified person, the book “contains strategies for experimental approaches to stiffness, strength and toughness testing” of plastic materials. The presentation style of the book is quite different from the norm, and many short numbered sections comprise each of the chapters, apparently not...
