Nonlinear Behavior of Polyisobutylene Solutions

  • L. J. Zapas


Experiments on various histories of simple shear were obtained with a polyisobutylene solution. A possible inadequacy of the BKZ theory is presented, together with a modified theory whose predictions are in agreement with the experimental data.
