Forensic Polymer Engineering: Why Polymer Products Fail in Service by Peter Rhys Lewis

Forensic Polymer Engineering: Why Polymer Products Fail in Service, Second Edition presents and explains the latest forensic engineering techniques used in the investigation of failed polymer materials that are illustrated with a very large number of detailed case studies which show the different types of failure and the forensic engineering techniques used in their investigation.

In this updated edition, new case studies have been added to include patent disputes and failed products such as spiral wound wall storage tanks, lithium battery explosions, water bottle failures, and breast implant failures (such as the PIP scandal). New images demonstrating failure have been included, and images from the previous edition are reproduced in color and enhanced with additional explanatory detail.

With a dedicated focus on polymeric materials, the book includes details on the experimental techniques that are used to characterize the materials, particularly in cases of failure. Finally, the book has information on the fabrication of polymer devices, as manufacturing flaws often play a role in failure.

  • Demonstrates the latest forensic engineering techniques used in the investigation of failed polymer components
  • Presents detailed case studies that illustrate different types of failure in polymer components, fittings, and medical devices
  • Examines the role of manufacturing in product failure with an overview of faults recognized in methods, design, and material selection
  • Provides an integrated approach to polymer failures that covers everything from basic materials properties, through to the experimental techniques required to study them
