The resultant transverse residual stress remaining in the corner section outer surface at the end of bending and subsequent elastic spring back is calculated by combining the bending and spring back stresses from Equations 20 and 22:
The resultant transverse residual stress remaining in the corner section inner surface at the end of bending and subsequent spring back is calculated by combining the bending and spring back stresses from Equations 21 and 23 as given below:
The capillary number Ca = [[mu].sub.p]GH/[sigma] represents the ratio of viscosity force to interfacial tension [25], [[mu].sub.p] represents the viscosity of polymer solution, [[mu].sub.o] represents the viscosity of residual oil, and the viscosity ratio of residual oil and the polymer solution is [[lambda].sub.[mu]] = [[mu].sub.o]/[[mu].sub.p].
where [sigma] represents the interfacial tension between polymer solution and residual oil, [partial derivative]B the residual oil surface including point [x.sub.B], [kappa] the curvature of residual oil surface, n the outer normal unit vector of residual oil surface, and [delta](x - [x.sub.B]) is the [delta] function of the second order.

Results: HPLC showed statistically significant differences among two groups (P < 0.05) in the amount of eluted monomer There were significant differences at one hour (T 1) (p = 0.001), at two hours (T2) (p = 0.011) and insignificant difference (p = 0.606) was observed at the six hours (T3 ) interval in the residual monomer release in two groups.
