CHAPTER ONE TENSILE RESPONSE OF MATERIALS The tensile test is the
experimental test method most widely employed to characterize the mechanical
properties of materials. From any complete test record, one can obtain important
Brief mention was made in Section 1.3 of the effect of strain rate and temperature
on the mechanical response of engineering materials. It was shown that tensile
strength increased with increasing strain rate and decreasing temperature.
Such response is said to be viscoelastic. Since Tg and Tm of most polymeric
materials are not much above ambient (and in fact may be lower as in the case of
natural rubbers), these materials exhibit viscoelastic creep and relaxation ...

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
