An effect of strain rate on energy absorption during tensile testing of paper
Keywords:breaking energy, paper, tensile speed, breaking strength, tensile strength
The article analyses an effect of paper strain rate on energy absorbed during tensile testing. The tests were carried out in the range where the effect of inertia forces could be omitted. A new calculation method is proposed to predict variations in breaking energy caused by changes in strain rate. The method was verified by laboratory tests and calculation results and its practical usefulness was confirmed.
