Brief Communications


Problems of deformation in amorphous, glass-like polymers are considered. The deformation and strength properties of PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate) were studied, for different temperatures and conditions of deformation. It was established that the long-term resistance to deformation of glass-like polymers subjected to forced elastic deformation, as judged by the time lapse to "neck" formation, is described by a longevity equation, allowance being made for the displacement of the origin with respect to the coordinates.
