A fracture mechanics approach is used to give satisfactory data for predicting the service performance of polyethylene. Theory of fracture mechanics is described. The stress crack intensity is measured as a function of crack speed. Measuring crack speeds has advantage of providing a suitable reference scale against which toughness results, obtained using different test methods, may be compared. All results are correlated on a stress crack intensity vs crack speed basis. (P.S.-PL) ANNOTATION: The environmental stress cracking of polyolefins -a fracture mechanics approach.
