In a concentrated polymer solution, the entanglement of long-chain molecules results in a transient network structure, to which may be attributed certain aspects of the viscoelastic behavior of such a system. A suitable mechanical model for representing this network as a first approximation is a retarded Maxwell element with one spring and two dashpots. Experimental measurements of mechanical properties of polymer solutions may be made either by periodic deformation under conditions where… CONTINUE READING
