Abstract: Abstract The rheology of polymer melts depends strongly on temperature. Quantifying this temperature dependence is very important for fundamental, as well as practical, reasons. The purpose of this paper is to present a unified framework for handling the temperature dependence of rheological data. We considered the case (by far the most common in polymer melts) where all relaxation times (in the context of linear viscoelasticity) have the same temperature dependence (characterized by a “horizontal shift activ…
