Abstract

The mechanical properties of polymers are strongly influenced by meso-scale structure such as entanglement, orientation, folded chain, etc. However, the relationship between the meso-scale structure and macro-scale mechanical properties of polymers has not been clarified. In this paper, network models of polymer chains are introduced to simulate the meso-scale interactions. From the FEM analysis of this model, the effects of interactions on macro-scale mechanical properties are investigated.
