Power Series for Normal Stress Differences of Polymeric Liquids in Large-Amplitude Oscillator Shear Flow (2018-04)Exact solutions for normal stress differences in polymeric liquids subjected to largeamplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS) contain many Bessel functions, each appearing in infinite sums. For the simplest relevant model ...
Series Expansion for Shear Stress in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow From Oldroyd 8-Constant Framework (2018-06)When polymeric liquids undergo large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS), the shear stress responds as a Fourier series, the higher harmonics of which are caused by the fluid nonlinearity, and the first harmonic of ...
Exact Coefficients for Rigid Dumbbell Suspensions for Steady Shear Flow Material Function Expansions (2008-07)From kinetic molecular theory, we can attribute the elasticity of polymeric liquids to macromolecular orientation. For a suspension of rigid dumbbells, subject to a particular flow field, we must first solve the diffusion ...
(2018-08)We analyze quantitatively the oxidative degradation of a sample in a parallel-disk rheometer, as oxygen diffuses inward, radially, from the free boundary. We examine rheometer error mitigation by means of nitrogen blanketing, ...
The misregulation of epigenetic mechanisms has been linked to disease. Current drugs that treat these dysfunctions have had some success, however many have variable potency, instability in vivo and lack target specificity. ...
