ON THE THEORY OF DIFFUSION AND SWELLING IN FINITELY DEFORMING ELASTOMERS

Abstract : The role of a relaxed local intermediate configuration associated with free swelling is examined in the context of diffusion of a liquid in an isotropic elastomer. It is found that this configuration is energetically optimal if the free-energy function of the polymer-liquid gel is polyconvex. Further aspects of the general theory of diffusion in elastomers are also discussed.
