A Maximum Entropy Principle Based Closure Method for Macro-micro Models of Polymeric Materials

  title={A Maximum Entropy Principle Based Closure Method for Macro-micro Models of Polymeric Materials},
  author={YunKyong Hyon},
We consider the finite extensible nonlinear elasticity (FENE) dumbbell model in viscoelastic polymeric fluids. We employ the maximum entropy principle for FENE model to obtain the solution which maximizes the entropy of FENE model in stationary situations. Then we approximate the maximum entropy solution using the second order terms in microscopic configuration field to get an probability density function (PDF). The approximated PDF gives a solution to avoid the difficulties caused by the… CONTINUE READING
