Study of the Mechanical Properties of Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Fiber Rope

Abstract

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fiber (UHMWPE) exhibits outstanding strength to weight balance due to high molecular orientation, high crystallinity and low density. For these reasons, is widely used in applications demanding high strength high modulus fibers. This paper systematically studies the relationships between the mechanical properties of… (More)
