relaxation test

relaxation test

[‚rē‚lak′sā·shən ‚test]
(engineering)
A creep test in which the decrease of stress with time is measured while the total strain (elastic and plastic) is maintained constant.

However, a different pattern was observed in the stress relaxation test of accelerated weathered coatings, which indicates the combined effect of photodegradation and structure relaxation, as exhibited in Fig.
The Temperature Scanning Stress Relaxation (TSSR) meter performs the anisothermal stress relaxation test (AISR), a new test method that subjects a specimen to a constant tensile stress at a constantly rising temperature.
For the indentation stress relaxation test, displacement is held constant (through feedback in a force-controlled system) and the gradual decrease in force is recorded.

The obtained if values for HDPE from the dynamic and the stress relaxation test are very similar, which is consistent with the data from Larson [6).
The amount of force decay from t = 30 minutes to a desired time is generally measured in accordance with the compression stress relaxation test, ISO 3384(A).
