It is a matter of fact that creep experiments can be conducted more easily and accurately than stress relaxation experiments, since it is easier to maintain a stress constant (for instance by a “dead weight”) than a strain constant. Nevertheless, in practice, structural parts made of plastics (which are nonlinear viscoelastic materials) are very often loaded under stress‐relaxation conditions. The present paper presents an approach to predict the behavior of a nonlinear viscoelastic material under st…
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.
