Fatigue Strength: Components also Suffer from Fatigue
Choosing the right material and component design is particularly critical for plastics destined for use under the hood. Materials in this environment are exposed to pulsations for long periods of time in hot, aggressive media. For this reason, system suppliers and auto manufacturers place great importance on knowing the long-term dynamic load behavior of plastics, especially tailor-made polymers, before they are introduced into service. With a newly developed test specimen made from glass-fiber-reinforced polyamide, it is now possible to systematically study the fatigue behavior of the engineering plastic.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
