Order in Oscillatory Shear Flow
We examine the second order orientation tensor for the simplest molecular model relevant to a polymeric liquid in large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS), the rigid dumbbell suspension. For this we use an approximate ...
Hydrodynamic Interaction for Rigid Dumbbell Suspensions in Steady Shear Flow
From kinetic molecular theory, we can attribute the rheological behaviors of polymeric liquids to macromolecular orientation. The simplest model to capture the orientation of macromolecules is the rigid dumbbell. For a ...
