This manual presents information for the structural engineer in the selection of the proper material or combination of materials that will provide those properties (mechanical, physical, thermal, or whatever) upon which design assumptions and calculations are based. Essential differences between plastics and other structural materials are described, along with the associated differences in material selection philosophies. Guidelines for materials selection procedures are given. Factors affecting properties during production and use are examined. A section on reliability and quality control is also included. Test procedures for physical and mechanical properties and environmental effects are described. This manual supplements the "Structural Plastics Design Manual" (ASCE manual and report number 63).
