Ultimate Strength of Poly(Ethylene Terephthalate) Fibres and Its Relation to Thermal and Mechanical History
It is well-known that ultimate strength of polymers has a statistical nature and can be characterized by a suitable distribution function (e.g.Kausch (1971)). However,little attention has been paid to the relation between the first statistical moment of strength distribution function (arithmetic mean value in the case of Gaussian distribution),structure and/or conditions of polymer preparation.
