Learning outcomes
The course is focused on the study of molecular, supramolecular structure of polymers and methods of their evaluation. It also deals with the properties of fibers (thermal, surface, geometric, mechanical, sorption, electrical, etc.) with respect to their structure. The subject deals with rheological models of properties of polymers and fibers.
Theoretical and practical knowledge dealing with content of lectures and excercises
