In this work an intermediate model is used, which reduces to the free quenching stress model at low holding pressures and to the pressure-induced stress model at higher holding pressures.
This means that shrinkage started directly after the injection stage, and the ultimate stress distribution is expected to be dominated by the free quenching stress contribution.
An expression for the free quenching stress distribution valid for larger times is given by Struik (5), p.
