The review summarises and analyses the results of studies into the phase transitions in polymer solutions by mechanical field reported over recent years. Systems with liquid end crystallic phase separation as well as gel-forming systems are considered. Processes of dynamic structure formation preceding phase transitions in shearing and longitudinal field are described. The effect of polymer molecular mass, chain flexibility and concentration, shear stress (rate) and surface energies of components on the phase separation of polymers in mechanical held is considered. The theoretical concepts of phase transitions in polymer solutions under mechanical stress are analysed.
