Macromolecular Tumbling and Wobbling in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow
For a suspension of rigid dumbbells, in any simple shear flow, we recently solved for the diffusion equation for the orientation distribution function by a power series expansion in the shear rate magnitude. In this paper, ...
Molecular Continua for Polymeric Liquids in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow
In this paper, we connect a molecular description of the rheology of a polymeric liquid to a continuum description, and then test this connection for large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS). Specifically, for the ...
