Course content

Learning activities and teaching methods
Learning outcomes
The course introduces basic changes of properties of polymeric materials during their processing and applications. It focuses on chemical reactions and physical processes occuring during degradation, fatigue and aging. It explains possible initiations of degradation reactions. It discusses characterization of each type of degradation and its path, possibilities of stabilization of polymer systems under given conditions of initiation and possibilities of utilization of present degradation reactions.
