Study of prefracture states of rigid polymers. 2. Elastic limit and strength

  • N. I. Shishkin
  • M. F. Milagin


An explanation is offered for the relation between the magnitude of stresses at the elastic limit (strength) and the strains in rigid polymers. The possibility of high-elastic deformation and orienting processes, which have been considered in [1], is also explained here. Expressions are derived that relate the elastic limit to the strain, the modulus of elasticity, the coefficient of thermal expansion, and the Poisson ratio.
