Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0792379802, Hardcover)

This reference work provides a simplified and practical approach to designing with plastic materials. It enables the reader to recognize the fundamental considerations necessary when designing products with plastics pertaining to the different processes and different plastics. Intended for both technical and non-technical readers, it encompasses the relation of materials and processes to understanding the art of designing. After introducing the design basics, the book moves on to discuss those factors which influence design. Design features and concepts are then covered, as is how to interpret the plethora of data available. Cost estimation, a key factor of the design process, is investigated in detail before the relative merits of the different types of plastics and processing techniques are presented. It finishes with a look at how the design of individual elements affect the final product design. The information contained will be invaluable to even the most experienced designers and engineers, as well as providing a firm basis for the novice. It provides a complete review of all aspects of the design process from the practical to the theoretical, and the elementary to the advanced.
