For the modeling of optical properties, we propose to couple the mechanical anisotropy to the optical anisotropy as in the work of Kuhn and Grun [6], Arruda and Przybylo [7], and Wu and Van Der Giessen [8].
The material parameters required to model the evolution of the optical anisotropy are n, N, [alpha] and [[eta].sub.av].
This optical anisotropy is attributable to the orientation of the polymer macromolecules.
The trend is similar for all unidirectionally rolled films, except that the optical anisotropy of the 3.6 x 1.0 rolled UHMWPP is somewhat larger than that of the conventional PP of comparable rolled ratio.
The optical anisotropy of the constitutive network description of Arruda and Boyce (7) is considered in the present study to produce an internal variable-based model of elastomeric deformation, valid for generalized strain states.
