Introduction to pVT Data


This chapter gives a brief introduction to the pVT behavior of polymers. The compressibility and thermal expansivity are obtained based on the experimental pVT parameters like specific volume and density. These parameters are measured under defined pressure and temperature conditions. The experimental details to obtain the pVT data are also described.
