• Macromolecular Tumbling and Wobbling in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow 

      Jbara, Layal M.; Giacomin, A. Jeffrey (2018-11)
      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 

      Giacomin, A. Jeffrey; Saengow, Chaimongkol (2017-05)
      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 ...
    • 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 ...
