Abstract

The melt viscoelasticity of continuous fibre thermoplastic composites is characterised isotropically, when using apparent Maxwell viscosities yield stresses are found in the range l0Pa to l000Pa, and as separate parallel and transverse viscoelasticities relative to the fibres, when the anisotropy of viscous and elastic responses can differ.
