Soft random solids and their heterogeneous elasticity
It can be regarded as either a model of a chemical gel, or as a caricature of vulcanized rubber or other soft random solid.
Soft random solids and their heterogeneous elasticity
The RLPM can be viewed as a simplified version of vulcanization theory [18, 25], with microscopic details, such as polymer chain conformations, being ignored.
