Abstract

The temperature rise due to heat generation associated with drawing of polymer is re-evaluated and rederived starting from the first law of thermodynamics. The errors of both formulations and sample calculations made in a previous investigation were corrected. The predicted efficiency or the fraction of mechanical work converted into heat during necking based on the present formulations is found to be reasonable.
