New progress in the modelling of stretching flows in a stress-crystallising polymer

Abstract:

The preferred polymer for many transparent thin-walled products requiring biaxial strength and dimensional stability is poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET). There are continual demands for improved product performance, while minimizing material usage, and process modeling is an important tool in achieving this. A new study of PET has been carried out, aimed at improving the fidelity of constitutive modeling of this polymer in stretch-forming processes. Several additional refinements have been ...
