Abstract:

The use of data-logging and data-processing techniques for the calculation of the results of tensile tests on polymers is described. It is shown that values obtained in this way do not differ significantly from those obtained by conventional means, and result in a considerable saving in time and effort. In addition, the results are consistently reproducible, and use of a data logger can give better recording accuracy than does a chart recorder.
