Abstract:

A brief summary of research on the simulation of plastic deformation in computer generated glassy polypropylene, and polycarbonate. Determination of the stress-strain response, and elucidation of the molecular segment motions associated with such deformations. Determination of the kinematics and energetics of phenylene ring rotations and carbonate group motions in polycarbonate. Keywords Plastic flow mechanisms Glassy polymers Segment rotations Computerized simulations Molecular interactions Molecular structure.
