Creep-deformation laws for certain rigid epoxies in pure shear at room temperature

  • A. Ya. Gol'dman
  • A. L. Rabinovich


Experimental creep data are presented for certain modified epoxy compositions tested in pure shear. The nonlinear generalized Maxwell equation with allowance for-the discrete relaxation spectrum is used for a theoretical analysis of the experimental results. Descriptions are given of a method of determining the inelastic constants for the principal terms of the relaxation spectrum and a means of determining the “width” of the spectrum for rigid polymers.
