Creep analysis of polymer structures

  title={Creep analysis of polymer structures},
  author={Gerald Gene Trantina},
One of the important aspects in designing polymer structures and predicting their lifetime is the computation of time-dependent deformation. A tensile creep law for constant uniaxial stress was developed using talc-filled polypropylene as an example. A simplified finite-element creep analysis technique for polymer structures was developed with only one time step, an isochronous stress-stress formulation, and a deformation plasticity-type analysis, With an elastic analysis and this one-step… CONTINUE READING
