A constitutive model for large strain deformation of semicrystalline polymers has been formulated to predict the complex elasto-viscoelastic-viscoplastic material response. The general form of this model can be represented by three parallel rheological components corresponding to each of the modes of deformation. It will be shown that such a configuration is well suited to the mechanical nature of polymers as observed in recent studies. The constitutive stress-strain-time relationships are drawn from continuum mechanics which are more suitable than simple linear expressions from rheology. The result is a large strain, fully three-dimensional constitutive model, derived from a thermodynamic basis. The proposed model can be fit to macroscopic experimental data and is highly suited to numerical analysis. The paper reviews the literature relevant to constitutive representation of semicrystalline polymers, provides conclusion and validation of the most suitable form of constitutive model and presents the relevant constitutive mathematics.
