Solid Organic Materials

Solid Organic Materials THE life of an engineer is largely a life spent in solving problems of a practical kind and so his attitude to nature differs from that of the scientist. Confronted with a particular material an engineer will first ask in what way he can use its particular and special properties whereas the scientist will want to know how those particular and special properties arise. But a good engineer must have knowledge of the scientist's conclusions, so I hope engineers will not think I am wasting time by trying to describe in these articles why wood behaves like wood and why rubber is rubbery. I have tried to keep the engineer's point of view in mind, and I have not attempted to give anything more than an outline of the reasons why a given material has its special and peculiar properties. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE life of an engineer is largely a life spent in solving problems of a practical kind and so his attitude to nature differs from that of the scientist. Confronted with a particular material an engineer will first ask in what way he can use its particular and special properties whereas the scientist will want to know how those particular and special properties arise. But a good engineer must have knowledge of the scientist's conclusions, so I hope engineers will not think I am wasting time by trying to describe in these articles why wood behaves like wood and why rubber is rubbery. I have tried to keep the engineer's point of view in mind, and I have not attempted to give anything more than an outline of the reasons why a given material has its special and peculiar properties.
