Part of the Cryogenic Materials Series book series (CRYMS)

Abstract

The mechanical properties of several epoxide resins (EP), linear high-molecular isotropic polyethylenes (HDPE) and stretched HDPE were determined between 2 and 293 Kelvin. This paper will concentrate on the tensile strength σB, the critical stress intensity factor K1c and the energy of fracture γ.
