Fluid absorption into the material

    • simon.shi

      Hello everybody, 

      I am hoping that somebody, who has a bit of experience can help me get an idea in regards to the possibility of my undertaking. I am currently investigating environmental stress cracking, which is the simultaneous influence of a fluid environment and a mechanical tensile force on a plastic component. 

      I have experimentally observed the fluid uptake for an extended amount of time but wanted to know the distribution of moisture over the thickness of the material as well as the time needed for the material to be "fully" wetted. Is this doable using a workbench? 

      Thank you for your help 

      Best regards,
