Material properties for high density polyethylene

Question asked by Bruce Flora on Jan 29, 2013



I am modeling a snap-in plug made from a generic high-density polythelene. A preliminary linear static analysis has a stress around 10ksi, well over tensile stress,

and a strain just under 5%. Obviously a non-linear analysis is in order, but I am not finding a tensile stress-strain curve, just tabulated values for Young's modulus, tensile stress and elongation. Can someone recommend a good database?
