The material parameters required to model the evolution of the optical anisotropy are n, N, [alpha] and [[eta].
av](0)], as it was previously taken in the modeling of rubber optical anisotropy [7, 8], the experimental data deviates slightly from the simulated intermediate model curve, but it will be still between the upper and lower limits of the refractive indices band (see Fig.
For flexible polymer solutions and melts, the net optical anisotropy due to flow can be obtained by measuring the differences in refractive indices in the direction of the principal stresses.
The mechanical anisotropy increases with increasing rolled ratio which is in good agreement with the optical anisotropy results.
The optical anisotropy of the constitutive network description of Arruda and Boyce (7) is considered in the present study to produce an internal variable-based model of elastomeric deformation, valid for generalized strain states.
