Fracture Behavior of Polymers

Chapter
Part of the The International Cryogenics Monograph Series book series (ICMS)

Abstract

Fracture analysis is complicated for polymers since, besides of temperature and time dependence, there are involved effects from plastification, chain orientation and adiabatic temperature rise. It is the aim of this section to describe several fracture processes which are specific of polymers. Fracture behavior is determined experimentally by the mode and time profile of loading. Stress- and strain controlled loading yields different behavior as well as loading in tension, compression or shear (torsion). Compressive strength is higher than tensile strength; shear strength is the lowest one.
