On the Transition from Linear to Non-Linear Viscoelastic Behaviour of Natural Rubbers

  • B. Stenberg
  • E. Östman


The theoretical basis for the analysis of the linear viscoelastic behaviour of polymers has been discussed excellently by Yannas1–4. Linear viscoelastic behaviour of polymers can be determined from isochronous stress-strain diagrams.
