Abstract

A micromechanically based formulation of the cooperative model is incorporated into Viscoplasticity Theory Based on Overstress Model (VBO). Thermo-mechanical analysis can be performed under different loading rates and temperatures of amorphous polymers. A micromechanically based formulation of the cooperative model is incorporated into the viscoplasticity theory based on overstress (VBO) model. The plastic shear strain rate given by the cooperative model is used as a flow function which is responsible for rate and temperature dependence in the VBO model. In this way, thermomechanical analysis can be performed under different loading rates and temperatures of amorphous polymers. Introducing strain softening, the temperature- and strain-rate-dependent elasticity moduli are two other modifications of the VBO formulation. The validity of the newly proposed cooperative VBO model is demonstrated by modeling the uniaxial compression behavior of poly(methyl methacrylate) under different temperatures and strain rates.
