Rubber Elasticity, Entanglement Constraints and the Memory—Lattice Model

  • Robert Ullman


The conformational freedom of a polymer chain in an elastomeric network is severely restricted by the presence of neighboring chains. Two monomer units cannot occupy the same space, and two chains cannot pass through each other. These entanglement constraints are not easy to introduce into the theory of rubber elasticity though many attempts have been made.
