Overshoot of shear stress, s, and the first normal stress difference, N1, in shear flow were investigated for polystyrene solutions. The magnitudes of shear corresponding to these stresses, gsm and gNm, for entangled as well as nonentangled solutions were universal functions of ġteq, respectively, and gNm was approximately equal to 2gsm at any rate of shear… CONTINUE READING
