  author={Irene Roberta Harrison},
Abstract The melting behaviour of polymers was modelled using polyethylene parameters. The model was based on the idea of melting followed by recrystallization and remelting, which can lead to multiple melting peaks. Experimental data is qualitatively fit by the model for changes in heating rate and original lamellar thickness. In addition one can use the model to predict less well documented changes in other parameters. For example predicted changes in the themograms with changes in thickness… CONTINUE READING
