Viscoelasticity, Ultimate Mechanical Properties and Yielding Mechanisms of Thermally Crystallized Polyethylene Terephthalate

  • Gabriel Groeninckx


In recent publications, the influence of the thermal history on the morphology, melting characteristics(1–3) and modulus-temperature behavior(4–5) of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) was investigated.
