For this purpose, the Kevlar fiber modulus was taken from standard handbook while that of polypropylene (PP) matrix was averaged from a Dynamic Mechanical Analyzer (DMA) between room temperature and the melting point. A negative thickness strain that implies thinning was observed. This effect was attributed to draw-out. Positive thickness strain that indicated the occurrence of thickening due to circumferential contraction was found at the sheet periphery.||Source Title:||Mechanics Research Communications||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/58691||ISSN:||00936413||DOI:||10.1016/S0093-6413(99)00015-4|
