Abstract

Swelling equilibrium of cylindrical gels under uniaxial compression has been studied. Based on the equivalence of the response of a network to osmotic deswelling and to deswelling induced by unidirectional compression a new method has been developed in order to determine the ratio of the shear modulus over the longitudinal osmotic modulus. For the experiments chemically cross-linked poly(vinyl acetate) gels swollen in toluene and iso-propyl alcohol have been used.
