Structural properties of hyperbranched polymers in the melt under shear via nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulation.

Abstract

Hyperbranched polymer melts have been simulated using a coarse-grained model and nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) techniques. In order to determine the shear-induced changes in the structural properties of hyperbranched polymers, various parameters were calculated at different strain rates. The radii of gyration which characterize the size of the… (More)
