Project Details Definition of Terms Relating to the Non-Ultimate Mechanical Properties of Polymers

Project No.: 
Start Date: 
01 January 1993
End Date: 
31 December 1997


The mechanical properties of polymers are widely measured and used in research laboratories in universities, institutes and industry, yet no single source describes their basis or gives their definitions in unambiguous terms. The present project aims to satisfy this need for a particular class of frequently-measured properties.
