Abstract

The research reported in this thesis is undertaken with the following objectives:
1. To determine the viscoelastic properties of polymers on creep test under constant load;
2. To determine the internal friction (loss factor) of polymers under periodic loading condition;
3. To determine the delayed time or life time on fracture of the polymer under constant loading ; and
4. To verify the relationship, theoretically predicted, between the time to fracture and the material characteristics of the polymer with experimental observations.
