Associative polymer solutions belong to a special class of polymers that can form physical gels and networks. These polymer solutions are used in a wide variety of products and applications such paints, food thickeners, adhesives, bio-medical implants and many such more. Understanding the static and dynamic properties of these polymer solutions at equilibrium and in flow are important to design many such products. In this thesis we have developed a simulation method to investigate and predict different properties of associative polymer solutions which will help to efficiently design and manufacture products involving these polymers.
