Mathematical model of the kinetics of thermal degradation of polymers with intensive heating

  • A. A. Polyakov
  • O. F. Shlenskii


A modified equation is proposed to describe the kinetics of the thermal degradation of polymers with allowance for temperature limits for the polymers. A physical interpretation of the model is given.
