Based on their framework, a modified viscoelastic-plastic model was proposed in this paper to describe the uniaxial ratcheting behavior of PC under tension-tension cyclic loading.
For ratcheting, the deformation accumulates successively along the direction of mean stress during the cyclic loading process.
Because of the ratcheting
mechanism the EZ Spanner[TM] enables firefighters to open the most obstructed fire hydrants faster.
The current work aims to study the multiaxial ratcheting
behavior of ABS.
They attached a triptycene molecule, which looks like a three-bladed fan, to a helicene molecule, which acts as a ratcheting
behavior is a cyclic accumulation of inelastic deformation occurred in the materials subjected to a cyclic stress loading.
of polymer materials is of great importance in the safety design and life assessment of polymer structure components.
Most of rubber components endure cyclic loading during their service, and a nonzero mean stress during cyclic loading may cause an accumulation of strain, which is known as ratcheting
phenomenon and ratcheting
strain is the strain accumulation of material under unsymmetrical cyclic stress (1).
deformation (cyclic creep) accumulates from the very beginning of cyclic loading.
