Since the PC used was initially isotropic, representations for this model were provided for an initially isotropic material.
The isotropic material has an initial crack oriented at 45[degree] relative to the load direction.

We determined the elastic constants of the oriented and isotropic material using a range of techniques, because no single technique was suitable for measuring all the constants.
Even the nominally isotropic material of melt-extruded polyethylene pipe may also contain more-modest, but less-controlled, levels of orientation.
When tested with the initial notch parallel to the draw direction, the toughness of the homopolymer and the blends decreased when compared with the isotropic material.
