Abstract

Recently, different models have been proposed to simulate large plastic deformation and microstructure evolution in crystalline polymers. When the contribution of the amorphous phase to deformation is ignored, idealized 100% crystallinity models are used to predict the stress strain behavior and texture evolution in the crystalline phase. To account for the contribution of the amorphous phase to plastic flow, two-phase composite models are used. The basics theoretical framework both idealized 100% crystallinity models and the composite ones are reviewed. Application of these models to simulate the stress strain behavior and textures evolution are show for the case of polyether-ether-ketone. The predicted results are compared with experimental ones.
