Statistical mechanics of a dielectric polymer chain in the force ensemble

Dear colleagues,

We invite you to see the preprint of our new paper "Statistical mechanics of a dielectric polymer chain in the force ensemble" that will appear in Journal of the Mechanics and Physics of Solids. Here we compute the electroelasticity of single polymer chains using both analytical approximations and novel MCMC techniques. Working in the fixed force ensemble facilitates the derivation of the analytical approximations, which are shown to agree well with the MCMC results. This work complements prior work on the statistical mechanics of dielectric polymers chains obtained in a different ensemble. (

PhD in Biomaterials for Aerospace Composites

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship at the University of Manchester to help develop the next generation of simulation tools. These will be used to evaluate the structural integrity of novel aerospace composites under a wide range of operational conditions.
