This report aims to describe recent developments in the major physical testing methods appropriate to thermoplastics, with references to much practical work carried out worldwide. An additional indexed section containing several hundred abstracts from the Rapra Polymer Library database provides useful references for further reading.Number of Cycles (log scale) Figure 3 S-N Curve for Fatigue Figure 4 Test Specimen for Simple Shear. IS! ... Plotting the incident energy against the number of impacts produces a characteristic curve similar to the familiar S-N curve. ... to the testing of products and of selecting suitable materials for use in those products, the problem is compounded. ... For example, Klein et.al. ... (336) report on the use of a screen printed grid of electrically conductive paint crossing the path of the crack.
