Creep and Fatigue experiments were carried out on nylon6.6 tyre materials in order to examine the structure-creep-fatigue relationships of these materials. Creep experiments were conducted at different temperature levels using a specially designed apparatus. Flex fatigue experiments were conducted at ambient temperature. Materials under different stress levels were flexed over a pin. The results showed structural change in the nylon polymer during both creep and fatigue. This was highly influenced by change in temperature and stress level. High temperatures and stress levels accelerated molecular movement causing quick failure.
