Cracks in Polymer Spherulites: Phenomenological Mechanisms in Correlation with Ring Bands


This article reviews possible mechanisms of various crack forms and their likely correlations with interior crystal lamellae and discontinuous interfaces in spherulites. Complex yet periodically repetitive patterns of cracks in spherulites are beyond attributions via differences in thermal expansion coefficients, which would cause random and irregular… (More)
