ANALYSIS OF CORRELATIONS BETWEEN PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF PLASTIC MATERIALS IN THE NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROCESS
The contribution of the authors of the present paper is the development of unified model for comparative analysis of various plastic materials based on their physical and mechanical parameter, having as target an easier and more selective way of choosing this kind of materials in engineering applications. The proposed method has at base a graphical representation of their values as a rectangular shape, this resulted 2D representation can be interpreted in an easier way. When a new product is required, from the position in this representation for each material, the user could select the best matching materials based on the represented properties.
