The subject deals with the principles of physical and physical-mechanical methods that are used for characterisation of polymers and polymer materials (properties and structure); with basics of testing and normalisation. The subject follows up Macromolecular chemistry and Physics of polymers. The following entry knowledge is required: nomenclature of macromolecular chemistry, knowledge of structure and physical properties of macromolecules, basics of instrumental methods.
