Just one word . Benjamin: Yes, sir . Mr. McGuire: Are you listening? Benjamin: Yes, I am . Mr. McGuire: Plastics. 2 MSE 2090: Introduction to Materials Science Chapter 15, Processing of Polymers ¾ The description of stress-strain behavior is similar to that of metals Stress – Strain Behavior (I) Polymers can be brittle ( A ), plastic ( B ), or highly elastic ( C ). Deformation shown by curve C is totally elastic (rubber-like elasticity, large recoverable strain at low stress...
