Material failure of dynamically loaded polymeric products

In many applications, products made of polymeric materials are subject to dynamic (cyclic) loads (typical example: polymer gears). In such cases, material failure often occurs as deformation in the product accumulates over time. The aim of this study is to compare the experimentally measured and predicted material failure due to the accumulation of deformations of dynamically loaded polymeric materials. For this purpose, the candidate will use the existing model for predicting the accumulation of deformations and compare it with the experimentally measured deformation of the material.
