Modeling and simulation of deformation behavior of glassy polymers

    Activity: Talk or presentationInvited lecture

    Description

    - Amorphous solid (glassy) polymers are widely utilized
    e.g. in engineering components of vehicular and aeronautic
    systems.
    - Applications are due to high chemical resistance, good
    reforming properties, and a preeminent combination of
    toughness and strength under cyclic and impact loadings.
    - Failures of structures under cyclic long-term loadings
    have been assessed to be the most significant cause of
    huge financial losses.
    - Owing to purely elastic or hyperelastic initial response,
    state-of-the-art models for glassy polymers cannot predict
    cyclic deformation behavior well when
    - a model capable to predict real deformation behavior
    of glassy polymers and to simulate time-consuming and
    costly testings needs to be developed.
