In this study a constitutive modelling approach is used to predict the fatigue life of polycarbonate. After a thorough investigation on the heating effects, accurate lifetime predictions are made under isothermal as well as non-isothermal conditions. Moreover, it is shown that cyclic fatigue has an accelerated effect on the ageing behaviour.
