  • 9th Annual Student Colloquium & Poster Session.
    We present a kinetic model of crystal growth of elastomers under strain using the phase-field approach connecting the thermodynamic of crystallization and the local stress. The challenge is to model the dynamics of the strain-induced crystallization of elastomer in particular in natural rubber. The main idea of this approach is to use a local thermodynamic potential to describe the coexisting phases and their interfaces, and to add the local stress contribution to this functional. Dynamic equations are obtained based on conservation considerations.
