General Design Guidelines
To ensure the proper application of plastics, one must keep in mind three factors that determine the appropriate end-use: material selection, processing, and design. This article begins by providing information on various factors pertinent to the anticipated use conditions of the article to be designed. This is followed by a discussion on several stages necessary to define the geometry of plastic parts. Details on the strength of and cost estimation for plastic parts are then provided. The article ends with a section providing information on the structure, properties, processing, and end-use applications of plastics.
