Rheology of Polymers Near Liquid-Solid Transitions

  title={Rheology of Polymers Near Liquid-Solid Transitions},
  author={Horst Henning Winter and Marian Mours},
Polymeric materials near the liquid-solid transition (LST) exhibit a very distinct relaxation pattern. The reference point for analyzing these patterns is the instant of LST at which relaxation becomes self-similar over wide ranges of the relaxation time. The universality of this transition and its consequences have been explored extensively during the past decade. This study will present an overview of rheological implications inherent in liquid-solid transitions of polymers. The LST can be… CONTINUE READING
