Two Simple Time-Shear Rate Relations Combining Viscosity and First Normal Stress Coefficient in the Linear and Non-Linear Flow Range

  • Wolfgang Gleissle


The theory of linear viscoelasticity is able to describe the time dependent flow behaviour of viscoelastic liquids in the range of small shear rates K. Using a memory function, defined for example in 1, with a suitable set of constants the transient zero viscosity ηo(t,K→O) can be calculated. The theory of linear viscoelasticity however, predicts no shear rate dependency of the viscosity as aobserved for nearly all polymers at higher shear rates.
