The adverse effect of knit‐line formation on the mechanical properties of thermoplastics has been well documented for unfilled materials. A majority of these investigations concern amorphous polymers, whereas a number of engineering polymers are semicrystalline and also contain reinforcing fillers and fibers. The present investigation deals with the effect of knit‐lines on the mechanical behavior of unfilled and glass fiber‐reinforced semicrystalline polymers, such as polypropylene, poly(butylene ter…
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.
