Creep, Stress Relaxation, and Yielding
This article describes the general aspects of and practical problems of failure analysis of creep, stress relaxation, and yielding for homogeneous polymers. The effect of temperature and strain rate on the relationship between yield point and elastic modulus and the aging effect that polymers often undergo at room temperature are also discussed.
