Describes a consistent set of relations between the structure of polymers and their commercially important thermal and mechanical properties for engineering applications--facilitating the development of a framework of polymer physics to explore new application areas without prior correlations. Includes methods for the easy calculation of input parameters and tabulates the most important parameters for 250 polymers.
