Sample text

Let’s assume that D is the part thickness and d is the thickness of the thinner ­portion. Then d/D is the ratio of the two thicknesses. The appropriate curve d/D should be selected from the lower graph (Fig. 20). If none is available in Fig. 20, a d/D curve is established by graphic interpolation. Then a fillet radius, r, is selected. Next, the ratio r/d is calculated. The calculated ratio r/d is then located on the horizontal axis (Fig. 20, lower). A vertical line from that point is drawn to intersect with the corresponding d/D curve.

11 Thermal Properties deal, lowering stress levels and increasing strain levels. Higher temperatures will enhance the electrical properties of some plastics. 1 Melting Point Thermoplastic polymers become more flexible with increases in temperature. ­Crystalline resins exhibit a well-defined melting point. The melting point property is important with respect to the molding process or assembly techniques. Amorphous resins and liquid crystal polymers (LCP) do not have a sharp melting point. They exhibit this property over a larger range of temperatures.

15). Plasticity occurs when the stress goes beyond the yield point on the stress-strain curve for any given material. This material property can be utilized in cold-forming processes for some plastics. Increases in temperature greatly affect plasticity, especially in thermoplastic resins. 4 Ductility The material’s ability to be stretched, pulled, or rolled into shape without destroying its integrity is called ductility (Fig. 16). Polymers are categorized as ductile or ­brittle at a given temperature.
