The contents range from the physics of high modulus materials prepared from flexible chain, stiff chain and thermotropic liquid crystalline polymers, to the engineering applications of polymer composites.This book contains the lectures given at the International Summer School on High Modulus Polymers and Composites held at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, on 16-26 July, 1984. The aim of the Summer School is to invite distinguished scientists to review the progress of this rapidly growing field starting from basic principles and leading the participants to the forefront of research and applications. Because of this, the book should be of interest both to experts in this field and to those working in related fields who wish to know more about this subject. The contents range from the physics of high modulus materials prepared from flexible chain, still chain and thermotropic liquid crystalline polymers, to the engineering applications of polymer composites, and should be relevant to physicists, material scientists and engineers, as well as senior or postgraduate students in polymer science.


 Each author gives five lectures, allowing the topics to be treated in depth. This book, therefore, provides a more coherent account of the subject than can be found in most conference proceedings, and will serve as a useful reference. At the same time, the rapid publication ensures that the material will be up to date.
