15 Scopus citations


The recent analysis of osmotic pressure in a semi-dilute solution of strongly stretched polymers is used to study the uniaxial stretching of a swollen polymer gel, in a good solvent. The resulting steady-state stress-strain relation complements Daoudi's analysis of the transient deformation of polymer gels.
