Polycaprolactam hardening during cyclic loading

  • I. P. Bareishis
  • A. V. Stinskas


It has been shown that two competitive processes occur during the fatigue of polycaprolactam under symmetrical tension—compression: the buildup of defects—weakening—and the hardening of the material as a consequence of the removal of the plasticizer and structural changes.
