    Abstract

    The response of many soft materials to external fields is dominated by transient forces, which arise from memory of the configurations the system has undergone in the past. Using large-scale particle-based simulations we show that these transient forces lead to a rich non-equilibrium behavior in networks of soft polymeric particles or polymer-engrafted colloids. We compute the diagram of states for an experimental system of network-forming associative polymers and show viscoelastic instabilities such as shear banding, melt fracture and a shear-induced disorder-order transition.
