Abstract

The intrinsic viscosity of a suspension of stiff dumbbells is evaluated by a time correlation function method. The required moments of the internal coordinates are calculated directly from the diffusion equation, without explicit evaluation of the Green's function. For the rigid dumbbell, the correct high frequency limit is obtained, disposing of recent doubts over this possibility. The interplay of dumbbell stiffness and shearing frequency is also illustrated.
