#### Elastomers in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Uniaxial Extension Revisited

(2017-07)

In this work, we subject elastomers to a fixed pre-stretch in uniaxial extension, ε p , upon which a large-amplitude, ε 0 , oscillatory uniaxial extensional (LAOE) deformation is superposed. We find that if both ε p and ε ...

#### Elastomers in Oscillatory Uniaxial Extension

(2016-02)

In this work, we subject elastomers to a fixed pre-stretch in uniaxial extension, ε p , upon which a large-amplitude, ε 0 , oscillatory uniaxial extensional (LAOE) deformation is superposed. We find that if both ε p and ε ...

#### Fluid Elasticity in Plastic Pipe Extrusion: Loads on Die Barrel

(2017-07)

In large thick plastic pipe extrusion, the residence in the cooling chamber is long, and the melt inside the pipe sags under its own weight, causing the product to thicken on the bottom (and to thin on the top). To compensate ...

#### Exact Solutions for Oscillatory Shear Sweep Behaviors of Complex Fluids from the Oldroyd 8-constant Framework

(2017-05)

Large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS) is a popular for studying the nonlinear physics of complex fluids. Specifically, the strain rate sweep (also called the strain sweep) is used routinely to identify the onset ...

#### Review of Nonlinear Oscillatory Shear Flow Notations and Presentations: Polymeric Liquids

(2018-12)

We review notations for, along with ways of presenting, the shear stress responses to large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS). We find that the Fourier loss and storage viscosities to be the simplest primal notations ...

#### Exact Coefficients for Rigid Dumbbell Suspensions for Steady Shear Flow Material Function Expansions

(2008-07)

From kinetic molecular theory, we can attribute the elasticity of polymeric liquids to macromolecular orientation. For a suspension of rigid dumbbells, subject to a particular flow field, we must first solve the diffusion ...

#### Series Expansion for Shear Stress in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow From Oldroyd 8-Constant Framework

(2018-06)

When polymeric liquids undergo large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS), the shear stress responds as a Fourier series, the higher harmonics of which are caused by the fluid nonlinearity, and the first harmonic of ...

#### Power Series for Normal Stress Differences of Polymeric Liquids in Large-Amplitude Oscillator Shear Flow

(2018-04)

Exact solutions for normal stress differences in polymeric liquids subjected to largeamplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS) contain many Bessel functions, each appearing in infinite sums. For the simplest relevant model ...

#### Degradation in Parallel-Disk Rheometry

(2018-08)

We analyze quantitatively the oxidative degradation of a sample in a parallel-disk rheometer, as oxygen diffuses inward, radially, from the free boundary. We examine rheometer error mitigation by means of nitrogen blanketing, ...

#### Power Series for Shear Stress of Polymeric Liquid in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow

(2018-04)

xact solutions for shear stress in a polymeric liquid subjected to large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS) contain many Bessel functions. For the simplest of these, for instance, the corotational Maxwell fluid, in ...
