The Behavior of Plastics under Various Tensile Test Speeds - Development and Application of a Testing Machine for Producing High Loading Rates
The mechanical properties of polymers depend to a greater extent on the temperature and strain rate than many other materials. The loading rates of conventional tensile testing machine are 0,033 m / s. To determine the stress-strain behavior even at faster strain can, a high tensile test machine with strain rates ranging from 1 to 50 m / s was developed and thereby allows a speed range of 6.5 orders of magnitude. In conventional sample geometries are strain rate of approximately 10-2 to 105 (%/s) are possible. Force, strain and by integration of stress-strain curves the absorbed energy can be determined.
Tested are PA, ABS, PC, PMMA, PE, PVC, CAB and PU elastomers in the temperature range from -40 to + 140 ° C. Generally the tensile strength will increase with strain rate and the elongation at break. For the type of plastic-based high strain rates, there is brittle failure. Increased speeds have the same effect as decreased temperatures.Lesen Sie die deutsche Zusammenfassung auf Kunststoffe.de
