    Notes: The linear viscoelastic behavior of commercial broad-distribution polypropylenes is studied. The samples underwent different controlled peroxide degradation rates, so they exhibit different molecular distributions. The relaxation spectrum is obtained by assuming that it takes the shape of a Log-Normal distribution. It is in agreement with the linear viscoelasticity theory by providing limiting values, contrary to other models. Moreover, the ratio τw/τn which takes place in this law is very useful to distinguish the synthesis differences of the samples when the Melt Flow Index alone cannot.

    Notes: Using an integral nonlinear constitutive equation including the Log-Normal relaxation spectrum, the fiber-spinning behavior of commercial polypropylenes is studied. The relaxation spectrum is strongly related to the molecular weight distribution. Moreover, by means of a finite element analysis, simulated stress and velocity profiles are obtained either in isothermal or nonisothermal cases. In the isothermal case, broadening the relaxation spectrum leads to more pronounced curvature of the velocity profile. In the nonisothermal case, the critical draw ratio is sensitive to the mean relaxation time which depends on both average molecular weight and distribution breadth. It is shown that increasing the average relaxation time leads to a less rapid growth of the velocity. Furthermore, this effect is less pronounced when the relaxation spectrum is wider.

    Notes: Crystallization at high supercooling of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) droplets dispersed in a molten polyethylene (PE) matrix was investigated through rheological and DSC experiments. The Palierne's emulsion model was used as a theoretical framework for studying the viscoelastic behavior of the blends in different ranges of temperature: on the one hand, when the two polymers are molten (T 〉 225°C) and on the other hand, when PBT droplets are at high supercooling in the molten PE matrix (130°C 〈 T 〈 205°C). From rheological experimental evidences it was shown that molten and solidified droplets coexist at high supercooling. The Palierne's model was then successfully adapted to take into account the three phases (molten PE, molten PBT droplets, and solidified PBT droplets). The evolution of the behavior with the temperature is consistent with the growing amount of crystallized droplets. Moreover, a calculation taking into account the droplets size distribution and the number of nuclei is introduced to explain the crystallization behavior of three different blend ratios.© 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

    Notes: The acoustic radiation of general structures with Neumann's boundary condition using Variational Boundary Element Method (VBEM) is considered. The classical numerical implementation of the VBEM suffers from the computation cost associated with double surface integration. To alleviate this limitation, a novel acceleration method is proposed. The method is based on the expansion of the cross influence matrices in terms of multipoles using the expansion of the Green's function in terms of spherical Bessel functions. Since the resulting multipoles are not dependent on the elements locations, large computation time savings are achieved. Moreover, it is shown that by accounting for the monopole, dipole and quadrupole terms in the multipole expansion, the classical convergence criteria usually used in boundary element guarantee convergence of the proposed method. Several numerical examples are presented to demonstrate the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed method. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    Notes: Thermorheological properties of an incompatible polymer blend of polypropylene inclusions dispersed in a ethylene copolymer matrix were discussed from the emulsion model developed by Palierne. Due to the different rheological behaviors with temperature of the two phases, such a system proved to be a judicious blend in order to consider the special cases of the model applications: (1) the two phases are viscoelastic liquids, (2) the dispersed phase is a solid elastic assimilated to rigid spheres in comparison with viscoelastic liquid behavior of the matrix, and (3) the two phases are elastic solids. At low frequencies, the rheological behavior of the blend was not correctly predicted by the model. So interactions other than hydrodynamics can exist in the intrafacial region, and physical entanglements between the chains of the two constituents leading to topological interactions may be assumed at the interphase. © 1995 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

    Notes: A poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC)/poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) (80/20 w/w) polymer blend was studied by mechanical spectroscopy. Two relaxations can be distinguished: in the glassy state, a very large secondary relaxation in the range of 100 K to 325 K which results from the combination of secondary relaxations of PVC and PMMA; and only one main relaxation at 364 K associated to the glass rubber transition. The relaxation spectrum in the range of the β relaxation has been described by a relaxation time distribution function based upon a Gaussian function and a series-parallel model. The α relaxation was studied by means of a theoretical approach for the nonelastic deformation of polymers. We found that the miscibility of this blend appears to be a function of the observation scale: the PVC/PMMA blend is heterogeneous at the scale of molecular movements involved for the β relaxation process but homogeneous at the scale of the chain segments responsible for the α relaxation dynamics. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
