    • Abstract

       

      Axially compressed Kevlar 49 fibres have been examined by X-ray diffraction methods. The most prominent effect of axial compression is the anisotropic deformation of the unit cell. Whereas thec-axial length, which corresponds to the chain axis, undergoes contraction, the basal plane dimensions manifest enlargement. The deformations increase with the extent of axial compression. The half-widths and the azimuthal spread of reflections also exhibit changes. The compression induced structural changes provide qualitative support to the experimentally observed reduction in tensile strength and modulus.
