Abstract

This article discusses various factors influencing general polymeric behavior, ductile-brittle transitions, crazing, and the brittle fracture of polymeric materials. The discussion covers the effects of environment on glassy thermoplastic, several parametric descriptions of craze initiation, the kinetics of craze growth, and the effect of crazing on toughness of the plastic. In addition, the article provides information on various tests to determine stress-to-craze value, strain-to-craze value, and fracture toughness of the plastic.
