Abstract A previously developed formulation for modeling the thermomechanical behavior of chemically decomposing, polymeric materials is verified by simulating the response of carbon phenolic specimens during two high temperature tests: restrained thermal growth and free thermal expansion. Plane strain and plane stress models are used to simulate the specimen response, respectively. In addition, the influence of the poroelasticity constants upon the specimen response is examined through a… CONTINUE READING
