Mechanical, Thermal, and Microstructural Analysis of Polyvinyl Alcohol/Montmorillonite Nanocomposites
Tensile stress-strain behavior of the nanocomposites at displacement rates of (a) 1 mm/min and (b) 50 mm/min. Note that the error bars illustrate not only the uncertainty in the hardening and recovery but the failure strain as well. For samples that did not fracture, the failure strain uncertainty band extends off the -axis of the plot.
