Time Dependent and Nonlinear Effects in Polymers and Composites

Editor(s): Richard A. Schapery, C. T. Sun

STP 1357 describes worldwide recent developments on this topic and examines their practical applications. It also identifies important unsolved fundamental problems. 18 peer-reviewed papers are grouped under the subheadings of Polymers and Composites.

Polymers covers:
• Chemical and Physical Aging
• Nonlinear Viscoelasticity and Iscoplasticty.

Composites addresses:
• Effect of Physical Aging on Time-Dependent Behavior
• Multiaxial Nonlinear Effect
• Compressive Behavior
• Nonlinear Viscoelasticity and Viscoplasticty
• Failure and Failure Mechanisms
• Hygrothermal Effects
• Durability Accelerated Strength Testing

Audience: Engineers and researchers who are interested in durability of composite materials; specific issues of time dependent and non-linear behavior; and the mechanics of composites.
