Padé Approximants for Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow
Analytical solutions for either the shear stress or the normal stress differences in large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow, both for continuum or molecular models, often take the form of the first few terms of a power ...
Fourier Decomposition of Polymer Orientation in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow
In our previous work, we explored the dynamics of a dilute suspension of rigid dumbbells as a model for polymeric liquids in large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow, a flow experiment that has gained a significant following ...
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 ...
