Abstract

The relaxation behaviour of an initially-stretched, tethered flexible polymer chain is studied using the bead-spring model and the Brownian dynamics simulation method. Simulations are performed with and without the inclusion of hydrodynamic interactions. Relaxation is studied in the presence of a shear flow field, characterised by Weissenberg numbers in the range 0
