Polyelectrolyte gels

Zhigang Suo's picture

These notes attempt to address the concerns raised by Weil Hong, and supplement the notes on Poroelasticity, diffusion in an elastic solid. The main purpose is to add electrical effects, so that the theory will apply to polyelectrolyte gels. I’ll adopt an approach developed by Suo, Zhao and Greene for elastic dielectric (JMPS 2007 or preprint). The theory, however, has been developed by many people in many ways. See references at the end of the notes.

The note posted here has been substantially expanded in a paper by Wei Hong, Xuanhe Zhao and me, entitled Large Deformation and Electrochemistry of Polyelectrolyte Gels.
