Abstract

We use a Lagrangian finite element method to simulate experiments on continued and interrupted extensions of a highly entangled monodisperse polymer melt. It is demonstrated that delayed sample necking or rupture may be explained in terms of the original Doi-Edwards model augmented by the mechanism of chain stretching alone.
