LVE Tutorial: Graphical User Interface¶
Drag and drop a file(s) with a
.ttsextension, e.g. the set of
PI_**k_T-35.ttsfiles in the
data/PI_LINEAR/folder, with molecular weight from “13.5k” to “1131k”. See Data Files for a description of the data file organization.
BOB LVE uses a “polyconf” file, which contains information on the polymer architectures.
The “polyconf” files must carry a
.dat. They can be generated by theories in the React application in RepTate
or by BOB software (Chinmay Das and Daniel Read) outside RepTate (https://sourceforge.net/projects/bob-rheology/files/bob-rheology/).
Drag and drop a file with a
.ttsextension (see Data Files) OR add a dummy file if you do not have data corresponding to the “polyconf” file by clicking , which brings the following dialog.
The xrange of BOB predictions will correspond exactly to the xrange of the (dummy) file.
the “polyconf” file (with a
the maximum number of polymers
the maximum total number of arms (segments attached to a branch point)
alpha: the tube dilatation exponent
M0: the molar mass of a monomer
Ne: the number of monomers in an entanglement segment
the mass density of the polymer
the entanglement relaxation time
Click the “Help” button to show the original documentation of BOB v2.3 by Chinmay Das.
Click “OK” to launch the calculations of the linear rheology. In the theory text-box, you will find informations related to BOB simulation parameters and to the topology of the polymers found in the “polyconf” file.
