Title: Degradation of plastic waste due to wave action
Authors: Hng, Samuel Gei Ming
Keywords: Engineering::Civil engineering
Issue Date: 2019
Abstract: Plastic degradation due to ultraviolet (UV) exposure is traditionally studied in isolation, without external factors. This report explores the combination factors of UV exposure and wave action, to mechanically agitate the material and observe effects more closely resembling that of real-world scenario weathering. Tensile testing determined strength loss of materials, suggesting that material degradation could be accelerated by combination factors.
