Abstract

The adaptation of material characteristics to specific applications by using different fillers and reinforcements and/or using composite materials is an international trend in the development of the properties of polymers. A necessary condition for specific requirements on the strength and toughness level of polymers to be satisfied is a knowledge of the deformation and fracture mechanisms [1,2].
