Mesoscopic tube model of fluids composed of worm-like micelles
Rheological model of fluids involving Brownian relaxation, reptation, diffusion, and scission-recombination processes as relaxation mechanisms is formulated. Numerical solution of a particular example of the model displays the S-shape form of the shear rate versus shear stress curves observed in worm-like micellar solutions.
