Abstract: The transient elongational data set obtained by filament-stretching rheometry of four commercial high-density polyethylene (HDPE) melts with different molecular characteristics was reported by Morelly and Alvarez [Rheologica Acta 59, 797–807 (2020)]. We use the Hierarchical Multi-mode Molecular Stress Function (HMMSF) model of Narimissa and Wagner [Rheol. Acta 54, 779–791 (2015), and J. Rheology 60, 625–636 (2016)] for linear and long-chain branched (LCB) polymer melts to analyze the extensional rheological behavior of the four HDPEs with different polydispersity and long-chain branching content. Model predictions based solely on the linear-viscoelastic spectrum and a single nonlinear parameter, the dilution modulus GD for extensional flows reveals good agreement with elongational stress growth data. The relationship of dilution modulus GD to molecular characteristics (e.g., polydispersity index (PDI), long-chain branching index (LCBI), disengagement time τd) of the high-density polyethylene melts are presented in this paper. A new measure of the maximum strain hardening factor (MSHF) is proposed, which allows separation of the effects of orientation and chain stretching.
