The generalization of a multiordering parameter model to treat physical aging in polymeric glasses is more fully explored. In the past, this model has successfully rationalized most aspects of time dependent volume and enthalpy behavior; however, only qualitative agreement between predictions of the generalized model and experiment were previously achieved for physical aging. Now, by paying strict attention to the specific analytical form of the shift factor expression, quantitative predictions have …
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.
