Tie chains and modulus of nylon 6 fibers

Authors


Abstract

A large number of nylon 6 fiber samples with varying internal structure were obtained by changing draw ratios, drawing temperature, and quenching immediately after drawing. Modulus of these samples is analyzed by Takayanagi model and fraction of tie chains is obtained. It is observed that the modulus of these samples is directly proportional to the fraction of tie chains.
