Study on the temperature dependence of the bulk modulus of polyisoprene by molecular dynamics simulations
Article dans une revue avec comité de lecture
The temperature dependence of the bulk modulus of polyisoprene has been studied using molecular dynamics simulations. Virtual polyisoprenes have been submitted to volume contractions above and below the glass transition. Bulk modulus has been observed to be linearly dependent on temperature both above and below the glass transition respectively, and it dropped by a factor of about 2 while temperatures was risen above the glass transition. By monitoring the energy changes during volume contractions, it was observed that the bulk modulus arises mainly from the Van de Waals interactions. Nevertheless, the entropy contribution to the bulk modulus becomes significant above the glass transition. At a first order, the entropy part of the bulk modulus can be considered as independent on the temperature.

Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureThe Mullins’ effect remains a major challenge in order to provide good mechanical modeling of the complex behavior of industrial rubber materials. It’s been forty years since Mullins  wrote his review on the phenomenon ...
An experimental and analytical study of the elasticity of model polyurethane networks crosslinked by tri- and quadriisocyanate Article dans une revue avec comité de lecturePolyurethane networks have been prepared from a mix of tri- and quadriisocyanate and from two types of diols, polyether-based (with molar masses of 1,000, 2,000, and 4,000 g/mol) and polyester-based (1,035 g/mol). The ...
Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureMERCKEL, Yannick; DIANI, Julie; BRIEU, Mathias; GILORMINI, Pierre; CAILLARD, Julien (American Chemical Society, 2011)Several carbon-black filled styrene-butadiene rubbers showed different sensibilities to the Mullins softening when submitted to cyclic uniaxial tension. In order to quantify this softening, a damage parameter was introduced. ...
On the account of a cohesive interface for modeling the behavior until break of highly filled elastomers Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureTOULEMONDE, Paul-Aymé; DIANI, Julie; GILORMINI, Pierre; DESGARDIN, Nancy (Elsevier, 2016)The nonlinear behavior and failure of highly filled elastomers are significantly impacted by the volume fraction, the size and nature of fillers and the matrix stiffness. Original experimental data obtained on glass beads ...
Article dans une revue avec comité de lectureGILORMINI, Pierre; DIANI, Julie (Elsevier, 2015)This study shows how the results given by a cohesive-zone model at finite strain may depend strongly on its numerical implementation. A two-dimensional four-node cohesive element is considered, which includes several ...
