Original Contributions


This paper contains an extensive presentation of dynamic mechanical data (complex moduli), as obtained on the melts of a series of standard polystyrenes of narrow molar mass distributions. It also shows the way of obtaining structural parameters (plateau modulus and friction factor) which are needed for an interpretation of these data in terms of simple theoretical models (Maxwell elements, Doi-Edwards model). A linear mixing rule is used for taking into account the finite width of the molar mass distributions.
