1. Shivpaul, Ryan Alexander. The effects of a visco-elastic polymer glove on hand-arm vibration, muscle activity, and comfort during simulated power tool use.

Degree: 2017, University of Ontario Institute of Technology

Prolonged exposure to hand-transmitted vibration (HTV) as a result of power tools can lead to hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). The effectiveness of anti-vibration (AV) gloves for the reduction of hand arm vibration remains unclear. The ability of a glove to attenuate vibration is largely influenced by the material properties and forearm muscle activity during tool use. Visco-elastic polymer (gel-based) and air-bladder AV gloves are the most common options, however the material properties of gel based options have seen little attention. The purpose of this study is to investigate vibration transmissibility, forearm muscle activity and subjective grip dexterity using a variety of gel-based compositions and designs. Participants completed six simulated hand-held power tool tasks. RMS vibration, grip force, muscle activity, and perceived levels of comfort, dexterity, onset of forearm muscle fatigue and impairment of tactile sensation were collected. Vibration attenuation was most effective along the Z axis, with properties such as decreased contact stiffness, as well as increased mass, elasticity and viscosity performing better. Further investigation of visco-elastic polymers using the ISO standardized protocol is needed. Advisors/Committee Members: Holmes, Mike, Yielder, Paul.

2. Ingremeau, François. Solutions de polymères sous écoulement : liens entre propriétés microscopiques et manifestations macroscopiques : Polymer solution flows : links between microscopic properties and macroscopic behaviors.

Degree: Docteur es, Lasers, matière et nanosciences, 2013, Université de Bordeaux I

Ce manuscrit présente les résultats d'expériences illustrant différentes manifestations de la présence de polymères dans un écoulement. Pour chacune d'elles, nous étudions l'interaction entre la structure microscopique et l'écoulement.Lorsqu'une goutte se détache d'un capillaire, la colonne de liquide liant la goutte au capillaire doit se rompre. Pour les liquides simples, l'amincissement suit des lois universelles bien établies. La dynamique de détachement d'une goutte de fluide complexe est très différente. Pour les solutions de polymères, après une phase de décroissance rapide du diamètre de cette colonne, il se forme un long filament cylindrique entre la goutte et le capillaire. Afin de mieux comprendre comment les polymères présents en solution donnent naissance à ce filament, nous avons observé leurs conformations au cours du détachement. Ces observations confirment que l'étirement des polymères est à l'origine du ralentissement du processus de détachement. Cependant, lors de l'amincissement du filament, la distribution des longueurs reste inchangée. Ce résultat inattendu, nous a amené à mettre en place une nouvelle méthode pour estimer la viscosité élongationnelle.D'autres expériences sont présentées, l'une porte sur un effet de déplétion qui apparait lors de l'écoulement confiné d'une solution de polymères, alors que l'autre porte sur l'écoulement instable d'une solution concentrée de polymères dans une conduite rectiligne.

This work considers the interaction between a flow field and the microscopic degrees of a freedom of a polymer solution. Different flow configurations were considered.Droplet pinch off, which occurs when a drop of liquid detaches from a capillary, can be strongly modified in the presence of polymers giving rise to long and slender filaments that thin slowly in time. We here study experimentaly the dynamics of necking and the conformations of polymers during the thinning of the neck. Our results show that the slow down of the thinning dynamics is the result of polymer stretching. Moreover, during the filament thinning, the polymer length distribution remains the same. This result is unexpected and led us to introduce a new method to estimate the extensionnal viscosity which represents the polymer solution resistance to stretching.In a second flow configuration, we have observed that depletion of polymer molecules near a surface occurs when a bead approaches a plate in a polymer solution.
