Abstract

In recent times, there has been considerable interest in HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) materials for their use in construction of office equipments, home electronics, housing for electronics appliances, packing containers, etc. However, these materials suffer from problems caused by fatigue fracture. Further, their strength is substantially affected by environmental conditions. Therefore, in this study, the effect of temperature was analyzed by performing a tensile test and a fatigue test. It was observed that the yield strength, the ultimate strength, and the fatigue life decreased relatively with an increase in temperature. Further, an S-N curve can be predicted by using the results of the tensile test and a micro-Vickers hardness test.
