This study applied a generalized model to describe and optimize the formation process of nanofilms from their polymeric solutions. Through this model, one can optimize the concentration of the solvent in the polymeric solution, the appropriate geometric dimensions as well as the nanofilm formation speed. A comparison of this model with experimental data has revealed some similarities and differences in the solidification and evaporation processes of the solvent. The yield strength and plasticity were deeply studied using numerical simulation for polypolymer nanofilms when subjected to a tensile deformation along the <001> direction.

Key words: Polypolymer, linear polymers, rheological equation of state, tensile deformation, polymer nanofilm.
