Beginning with an overview of the performance of polymer materials, these papers address the manner in which fractures occur in a range of related materials including adhesives and composite materials.

"All the papers are presented at a high scientific level, and each contains useful tables and figures. This volume is recommended to all interested in the field of fracture mechanics of polymers." D. Feldman, Polymer News, Volume 1, 2004
