GLaMM Model

Summary

Full SCCR theory for the Non-linear transient flow of linear entangled polymers.

  • Parameters
    • tau_e : Rouse time of one entanglement segment (of length \(M_e\).

    • Ge : Entanglement modulus.

    • Me : Entanglement molecular weight.

    • c_nu : Constraint release parameter.

    • R_S : Retraction rate parameter

This theory is intended for the prediction of non-linear transient flows of linear entangled polymers. The model includes the contribution from contour length fluctuations, reptation, retraction, constraint release and variable number of entanglements.
