Abstract:

A brief review is presented of the basic principle of the thermomechanical method for testing and investigating polymers and its scientific and industrial applications. The method is defined as a determination of the deformability of solid polymers in a wide temperature range underA GIVEN MECHANICAL STRESS. Monoaxial compression is quoted as the stress most widely used in existing devices, like Kargins balance with visual reading. Devices with automatic recording and devices in which a continuous stress is used under a constant rate of temperature increase are also noted. Author
