Abstract : The occurrence of dimensional changes in plastic parts fabricated by various means are a function of both time and temperature. The class of dimensional variations for which the terminology shrinkback is applied are strongly time dependent and often in a direction opposite from that expected from thermal expansion. The thermal expansion effects, analogous to those that one observes in non-polymeric materials, may be considered essentially independent of time in situations characterized as unconstrained.
