Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of a First Normal Stress Difference-Based Model for Shear-Induced Crystallization of Polyethylene
  Abstract

The paper presents a numerical simulation for the isothermal flow-induced crystallization of polyethylene under a simple shear flow. The effect of flow on crystllization is considered through the simple mathematical relationship between the additional number of nuclei induced by shear treatment and the first normal stress difference. Leonov viscoelastic model and Avrami model are used to describe the normal stress difference and the crystallization kinetics, respectively. It is found that the short-term shear treatment has a large effect on the crystallization dynamics of polyethylene , but the effect of the intensity of the shear flow is not infinite ,which shows a saturation phenomenon, namely, the accelerated degree of crystallization tending to level off when the shear rate or shear time is large enough.
