Effect of scale and temperature factors on the compressive and shear strengths of plastics

  • 18 Accesses

Abstract

Results are given of investigations of certain strength characteristics of a number of thermosetting plastics in relation to the scale of specimens reduced to 1/5 the standard size, i. e., the effect of the scale factor on the mechanical characteristics of plastics in compression and shear. In addition, results of a study of the dependence of the mechanical characteristics of plastics on the degree of heating in the temperature range from 20 to 200°C, i. e., the effect of the temperature factor on these characteristics, are also given.
