The moisture absorption behavior of the structural adhesive is commonly analyzed by just describing the characteristics of the moisture uptake versus time without relating it with the established concept of Fickian behavior. Therefore the aim of this book is to serve as a guide for undergraduate student doing final year research project, postgraduate students and researchers who do not have formal course on Fick's theory in college. The examples given are based on the author's experienced in investigating the moisture uptake of polymer.
