The shape memory property of amorphous polymer networks is the result of two intrinsic properties of these materials: 1) The viscoelasticity and 2) the
I started working on the shape memory property of polymers at CU Boulder thanks to Professor Ken Gall who introduced me to the topic.
The linear viscoelasticity of several carbon-black filled SBRs were characterized by DMA tests on a DMAQ800 dynamic uniaxial tension machine from TA. Figure 1. Storage
