Strain crystallization

Strain crystallization is a phenomenon in which an initially amorphous solid material undergoes a phase transformation due to the application of strain. Strain crystallization occurs in natural rubber, and some other elastomers. The phenomenon has important effects on strength and fatigue properties.
