Higher performing transparent polymers such as the family of sulfone-based materials that were developed after the introduction of polycarbonate are typically not water white and also exhibit greater notch sensitivity even though they display good inherent ductility.
The start time of crack propagation of the 36MnVS4 connecting rod is earlier which indicates the 36MnVS4 has a stronger notch sensitivity.
The macroscopic mechanical behavior of the injected specimens presented low notch sensitivity, suggesting the existence of a certain level of material toughness.
To investigate the influence of CPE on the notch sensitivity of the blends, different notch depth including 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 5.5, and 6.0 mm were introduced in each blends.
The conventional concrete has notch sensitivity on its fracture properties.
The Notched Izod Impact test was also used to estimate a material's notch sensitivity. Compressive, bending and tensile strengths were used to determine the material's column load capacity.
In some cases, part shape was changed slightly to address other physical characteristics such as notch sensitivity and machining issues.
About 10 years ago, one of my clients suddenly encountered a problem with notch sensitivity in a white PC.
where q is called the notch sensitivity factor, which depends on the notch radius and the tensile strength of the material.
Can also be used to minimize notch sensitivity of PCs and TP polyesters.
The notched tests give an indication of the notch sensitivity of the material.
This difference is due to the notch sensitivity of the tensile strength of PMMA.
