Polymeric Foams Structure-Property-Performance is a response to the design challenges faced by engineers in a growing market with evolving standards, new regulations and with an ever increasing variety of application types for polymeric foam. Bernard Obi, an author with a wide experience in testing, characterizing and applying polymer foams, approaches this emerging complexity with a practical design methodology focusing on the understanding of the relationship between structure-properties of polymeric foams and their performance attributes. The book introduces the fundamentals of polymer and foam science and engineering but also goes into more depth to cover foam processing, properties, and uses for a variety of applications. By connecting the diverse technologies of polymer science to those from foam science, and by linking both micro and macro-structure-property relationships to key performance attributes the book gives engineers the information required to solve the pressing design problems involving the use of polymeric foams and to optimize the foam performance. With a focus on applications in the automotive and transportation industries, and uses of foams in structural composites for light weighting applications, the author provides numerous case studies and design examples of real life industrial problems from various industries and their solutions. Provides the science and engineering fundamentals relevant for solving polymer foam application problems Offers a exceptionally practical methodology to tackle the increasing complexity of real-world design challenges faced by engineers working with foams. Discusses numerous case studies and design examples - with a focus on automotive and transportatio
