Compression of polypropylene across a wide range of strain rates

Abstract:

Three grades of polypropylene were tested in uniaxial compression at room temperature, across a wide range of strain rate: 10-4 s-1 to 104 s-1. One grade is a conventional polypropylene homopolymer. The two other grades are the polypropylene forming the matrix phase of a continuous glass fibre-reinforced thermoplastic composite prepreg, with and without blending with a carbon-black master batch. Tests at the highest strain rates were performed using a compression split Hopkinson pressure bar....
