Entanglement effects in defect-free model polymer networks


The influence of topological constraints on the local dynamics in crosslinked polymer melts and their contribution to the elastic properties of rubber elastic systems are long standing problems in statistical mechanics. Polymer networks with diamond lattice connectivity are idealized model systems which isolate the effect of topology conservation from other… (More)
