#### Molecular Origins of Higher Harmonics in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow: Shear Stress Response

(2016-11-01)

Recent work has focused on deepening our understanding of the molecular origins of the higher harmonics that arise in the shear stress response of polymeric liquids in large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow. For instance, ...

#### Exact Analytical Solution for Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow

(2015-03-16)

When polymeric liquids undergo large-amplitude shearing oscillations, the shear stress responds as a Fourier series, the higher harmonics of which are caused by fluid nonlinearity. Previous work on large-amplitude oscillatory ...

#### Padé Approximants for Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow

(2015-03-17)

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

(2015-03-17)

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 ...

#### Complex Polymer Orientation

(2015-07)

Previously, we explored the dynamics of a dilute suspension of rigid dumbbells as a model for polymeric liquids in large-amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) flow. We derived the expression for the polymer orientation ...

#### Macromolecular Origins of Fifth Shear-Stress Harmonic in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow

(2016-08)

This study examines the simplest relevant molecular model of a polymeric liquid in large-amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) flow: the suspension of rigid dumbbells in a Newtonian solvent. For such suspensions, the viscoelastic ...

#### 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 ...

#### Polymer Orientation Contributions in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow

(2017-01)

Previously, we used a dilute suspension of rigid dumbbells as a model for the dynamics for polymeric liquids in large-amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) flow. We then use dumbbell orientation to explain fluid elasticity. ...

#### 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 ...

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

(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, ...
