Elastomers in large-amplitude oscillatory uniaxial extension

In this work, we subject elastomers to a fixed pre-stretch in uniaxial extension, ε p , upon which a large-amplitude, ε 0, oscillatory uniaxial extensional (LAOE) deformation is superposed. We find that if both ε p and ε 0 are large enough, the …

Probe microrheology without particle tracking by differential dynamic microscopy

We present a new method for performing passive probe microrheology. Using a simple theoretical framework, we show how probes’ mean-squared displacements can be extracted by analyzing intensity fluctuations in optical microscopy videos via …

Rheology and flow studies of drag-reducing gravel packing fluids

Viscoelastic additives are widely used as drag reducers in the oil and gas industry, and both polymeric additives and micellar surfactants are commonly used in well gravel packing applications. While the behaviour of polymeric additives such as …

Rheological and molecular characterization of long-chain branched poly(ethylene terephthalate)

Reactive extrusion with pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA) and tetraglycidyl diamino diphenyl methane (TGDDM) was conducted to create long-chain branched poly(ethylene terephthalate) (LCB-PET). The mechanical and molecular properties were analyzed by …

Rheology and structural changes of plasticized zeins in the molten state

Zeins, storage proteins from maize, are suitable for making biobased thermoplastic materials. The rheological behavior of a commercial zein plasticized with 20 w% glycerol was studied in the molten state by steady-state flow experiments in …
