Abstract

Rubber is a very common example of a substance which has both elastic and plastic properties. If a rubber band is placed over two pegs, it is stretched and behaves elastically. There will be a certain tension in the rubber band but as time goes on, this tension lessens. The rubber has undergone a certain amount of plastic flow. It has been the purpose of this research to study the analogous situation in the case of silicic acid gels.
