Material property models for poly(etheretherketone) (PEEK) have been combined with a residual stress model to provide a means for investigating the effect of crystallization process on the residual stress development in semicrystalline materials. The analysis shows that crystallization causes an increase in the residual stress levels. This increase is affected through an increase in the resin modulus values and through the resin modulus build‐up at higher temperatures. The shrinkage due to crystalliz…
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.
