Abstract

This paper examines the mechanics of viscoelastic fluids and their applications. The Elastic Dumbbell Model is further explored through manipulation of program variables. The research explained connects variables from transition probabilities within the Elastic Dumbbell Model to physical, measurable properties, specifically relaxation time and stress tolerance. Understanding the connection between these variables and their physical properties will allow researchers, scientists, and engineers to design fluids with variations of those same physical properties.
