Due to their efficient mechanical properties, light weight, and low noise during operation, plastic gears are replacing metallic gears in traditional and new applications. However, due to a lack of material characterization and complex relations between different geometric and operating parameters, polymer gear design remains an open challenge.This book serves as a comprehensive and professional guide on polymer gears design and processing. It will provide the reader with current developments carried out in the field of plastic gears production, characterization, and applications. This will include material development, tribological properties, simulations, and processing methods.

Unlike metals, non-metallic electro-conductive textiles are polymeric, flexible, durable, moldable, and light weight. A brilliant quality of these textiles is the capability to alter conductivity through various external stimuli (e.g., strain, torsion, pH, humidity) to suit a specific application such as sensors, heating garments, EMI shielding, energy harvesting devices, wearable electronics and more.Based on these concepts, the title has been structured into three main sections. Section I contains chapters discussing the various preparation methods of electro-conductive textiles, Section II contains chapters on their characteristics and features and Section III details the end-use applications and sustainability of these textiles.
