Abstract

At the gel point (GP), a material undergoes change from short range connectivity to 3D sample spanning structural self similarity (the critical gel, CG). The linear stress relaxation modulus, G(r), at the gel point is characterised by the Gel Equation; G(i)=St~", where a is the viscoelastic stress relaxation exponent (0Keywords
