STRUCTURALLY INHOMOGENEOUS REGIMES OF SPREADING OF FILM-FORMING POLYMER SOLUTIONSL. S. Stel'makh,a A. M. Stolin,b V. I. Savchenko, a and O. N. Fominaa UDC 541.54:532.4 Results of mathematical modeling of the process of spreading of polymer materials are discussed. Viscosimetric data obtained in the experiments have been analyzed and processed with the aim of determining the rheological properties of the polymer compositions used. aInstitute of Problems of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia; email: email@example.com; bInstitute of Structural Macrokinetics and Problems of Materials Science, Russian Academy of Sciences, Chernogolovka, Russia.
