Abstract

This paper deals with the prediction of long-term viscoelastic behavior of amorphous resin at a temperature below the glass transition temperature T g from measuring the short-term viscoelastic behavior at elevated temperatures based on the time-temperature superposition principle (TTSP) with vertical shift as well as horizontal shift. The long-term creep compliance as well as short-term and medium-term creep compliances were measured at elevated temperatures. The master curves of creep compliance can be constructed from measured data by shifting vertically as well as horizontally. The master curves of creep compliance constructed from measured data by short-term and medium-term creep tests agree well with those measured by long-term creep tests. Furthermore, the horizontal and vertical shift factors obtained from constructing the master curve are independent of the time period of creep tests. Therefore, the long-term viscoelastic behavior at a temperature below T g can be predicted accurately from measuring the short-term viscoelastic behavior at elevated temperatures based on the TTSP with vertical shift as well as horizontal shift.
