Paper Title:
A Phenomenological Constitutive Model Constructed for PC/ABS Blends
  Abstract

Based on previous available constitutive models, a phenomenological constitutive model has been constructed and is proposed to describe the strain, strain rate and temperature dependentdeformation behavior of PC/ABS blends. In this paper, four quasi-static uniaxial tension tests of a specimen tested at different strain rates and temperatures were used to identify the constitutive model constants. By using the proposed constitutive model, predicting the stress-strain behavior of the PC/ABS blend tested at certain strain rate and different temperatures compares well to the behavior exhibited from the tests. From comparison between the DSGZ and the proposed models, proposed model shows a better prediction. Evaluation of the proposed constitutive model was also presented and it has revealed that the proposed model might have a potential to be used for predicting a wide range of temperatures and high strain rates behavior of PC/ABS blends.
