"Complex Miscibility Behaviour for Polymer Blends in Flow"

*Polymer* **1995**, *36*, 149-154.

**Abstract:** Experimental observations of the effect of shear flow on the
miscibility of binary polymer blends an compared to calculations based on a
generalized Gibbs energy of mixing G gamma. This mixing free energy characterizes
the steady state established at shear rate gamma, as the sum of G(Z), the equilibrium
Gibbs energy and E(S), the energy the system stores while flowing.
