Distortion of nylon 6,6 molded bars caused by one‐sided absorption of water has been investigated experimentally and the results have been compared with the predictions of an analysis based on data measured on dry bars or bars that were immersed completely in water. Account is taken of swelling, secondary crystallization, variations in Young's modulus, and the original residual stress distribution prior to the absorption of water. The major influences on distortion are (i) swelling and (ii) secondary…
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.
