Verification of the hypothesis of the existence of a potential with reference to teflon

  • S. A. Elsuf'ev
Brief Communications


In establishing the rheological relations describing the behavior of materials during deformation it is often very useful to employ a potential function. The hypothesis of the existence of a potential is verified in relation to the deformation of teflon in a complex state of stress.
