Pagination or Media Count:
Stress-strain relations have been obtained in tension at medium strain rates for selected plastic materials suitable for shock mitigation. Data have been acquired at room temperature for rates of strain between .001 ininsec and 1.00ininsec. A CONVENTIONAL HIGH-SPEED TESTING MACHINE WAS USED TO OBTAIN THE DATA. All of the materials exhibited strain rate sensitivity over the range tested. Author-PL
