Grahic Jump Location
Simulations of uniaxial tension along each of the three material axes (x1,x2,x3) using the freely jointed chain (FJC) or the wormlike chain (WLC) model in the orthotropic constitutive model. Parameters used for the FJC simulations are a=4, b=3, c=2, N=7.25, n=1⋅1022/m3, and B=0.1 MPa. Parameters used for the WLC simulations are a=9, b=6.75, c=4.5, Λ=18.35, n=0.7×1022/m3, and B=0.1 MPa.
Grahic Jump Location
Simulations of uniaxial tension along the x1-axis using the freely jointed chain (FJC) model (represented by lines) or the wormlike chain (WLC) model (symbols) in the orthotropic constitutive model. The locking stretch was set to be λL=1.5, 1.7, or 1.9. Parameters are given in Table 1.
