• Hydrodynamic Interaction for Rigid Dumbbell Suspensions in Steady Shear Flow 

      Piette, Jourdain H.; Saengow, Chaimongkol; Giacomin, A. Jeffrey (2018-12)
      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 ...
    • Order in Oscillatory Shear Flow  

      Kanso, Mona A.; Giacomin, A. Jeffrey; Saengow, Chaimongkol; Gilbert, Peter H. (2018-12)
      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 ...
