It should be mentioned that there are temperature dependencies in the evolution of [DELTA][tau] for the first knee-like yield point of counterclockwisely twisted specimens: (1) the value at 120[degrees]C decreased for short aging period and then increased, while that value at 140[degrees]C continuously increased with aging time and (2) at 120[degrees]C, [DELTA][tau] of the first knee-like yield point becomes the same as [DELTA][tau] of clockwisely twisted specimens, while at 140[degrees]C, there is still small differences.
