Dynamics and flow-induced phase separation in polymeric fluids

  title={Dynamics and flow-induced phase separation in polymeric fluids},
  author={Peter D Olmsted},
The past few years have seen many advances in our understanding of the dynamics of polymeric fluids. These inclu de improvements on the successful reptation theory; an emergi ng molecular theory of semiflexible chain dynamics; and an understanding of how to calculate and classify “phase diagram s” for flow-induced transitions. Experimentalists have begun mapping out the phase behavior of wormlike micelles, a “living” polymeric system, in flow: these systems undergo transition into shear… CONTINUE READING
