An analysis is presented of the process of die drawing isotropic polymers, in the form of circular rods, to produce highly oriented materials with enhanced mechanical properties. The stresses in a small element of material undergoing the drawing process have been analyzed using a force‐equilibrium approach and the initial yield and flow stresses in the material have been predicted from the von‐Mises yield criterion. The stress‐strain‐strain rate characteristics of the polymer used in the analysis wer…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
