Creep Of Regain-Rheologically Simple Hydrophilic Polymers

M. Pecht


For a class of materials called regain-rheologically simple, creep curves at various regain states can be shifted along the time axis in such a manner as to generate a single (master) curve.  A constitutive model is then used to predict the creep response as a function of regain using experimental data obtained from a few simple tests on cellulosic hand sheets.
