On the Nonlinear Viscoelastic Behaviour of the PVC-Coated Fabric

Abstract:

Article Preview

The nonlinear viscoelastic response of a PVC-Coated Fabric has been studied. For the needs of the present study, creep and recovery tests in tension of both the warp and the weft directions at the different stress levels were executed while measurements were made of the creep and recovery strain response of the system. For the description of the viscoelastic behaviour of the material, Schapery’s nonlinear viscoelastic model was used. For the description of the nonlinear viscoelastic response and the determination of the nonlinear parameters, a method by using a combination of analytical formulations and numerical procedures based on a modified version of Schapery’s constitutive relationship where an instantaneous plastic and a transient plastic terms were added, has been developed. The method has been successfully applied to the current tests.
