Vibrocreep of polymer materials

3. Polyethylen; nonisothermal deformation

The vibrocreep of low-density polyethylene (LDP) in uniaxial tension has been investigated in the presence of vibration in the direction of action of the constant load. The material was deformed under nonisothermal conditions owing to heating caused by the dissipation of vibrational energy. Superimposing vibrations leads to a considerable increase in creep rate. It is shown that this increase can not be explained solely in terms of the rise in temperature due to heating of the material; there is also a dynamic creep acceleration effect. Avariant of the vibrocreep approximation with allowance for the dynamic and temperature creep acceleration effects is proposed.
