Create Polymer Configuaration with BoB¶
Create polymer configuration files using BoB v2.5 (Chinmay Das and Daniel Read). The configuration file created with this theory can then be analysed in the BoB LVE theory, in the LVE application of RepTate.
The original documentation of BoB can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/bob-rheology/files/bob-rheology/bob2.3/bob2.3.pdf/download.
M0: Mass of a Monomer
Ne: Number of monomers in an entanglement length
Ratio: Ratio weight fraction occupied by component
Architecture: Polymer architecture type (e.g. Linear, Star, Comb, etc.)
Num. of polymer: Number of polymers to generate of the above architecture type
Num. generations: Number of generations (for Cayley architecture type only)
Distr.: Molecular weight distribution (e.g. Monodisperse, LogNormal, etc.)
Mw: Weight-average molecular weight
PDI: Polydispersity index (PDI \(=M_w/M_n\))
