In order to estimate the effect of dilution on the measured extensional stress, [[sigma].sub.E], and rate of strain hardening we demonstrate stress--strain curves of the samples (see Fig.
It is noticed that the rate of strain hardening is greater at lower loads and at higher PVA content.
However at the higher strain rates (> 8 [s.sup.-1] it was then found that as the strain rate increases the rate of strain hardening decreases.
