The Appearance of Nonlinear Viscoelasticity in Glassy Polymers

  • Jan-Fredrik Jansson


Glassy polymers show linear or approximately linear viscoelastic behaviour only for small uniaxial tensile stress-strains as can be observed by the deviation from linearity in the isochronous stress/strain creep diagram.
