The crystalline structure of polymers can be described by two factors: chain
conformation and chain packing. The conformation of a chain relates to its
geometrical shape. In polyethylene, the chains assume a zigzag pattern as noted
6.4 DEFORMATION MECHANISMS IN CRYSTALLINE AND AMORPHOUS
POLYMERS We now consider the mechanisms by which crystalline and
amorphous polymers deform. Unoriented crystalline materials are found to
deform by a ...

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
