Startup Steady Shear Flow from the Oldroyd 8-Constant Framework
One good way to explore fluid microstructure, experimentally, is to suddenly subject the fluid to a large steady shearing deformation, and to then observe the evolving stress response. If the steady shear rate is high ...
Series Expansion for Shear Stress in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow From Oldroyd 8-Constant Framework
When polymeric liquids undergo large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS), the shear stress responds as a Fourier series, the higher harmonics of which are caused by the fluid nonlinearity, and the first harmonic of ...
Exact Solutions for Oscillatory Shear Sweep Behaviors of Complex Fluids from the Oldroyd 8-constant Framework
Large-amplitude oscillatory shear flow (LAOS) is a popular for studying the nonlinear physics of complex fluids. Specifically, the strain rate sweep (also called the strain sweep) is used routinely to identify the onset ...
Fluid Elasticity in Plastic Pipe Extrusion: Loads on Die Barrel
In large thick plastic pipe extrusion, the residence in the cooling chamber is long, and the melt inside the pipe sags under its own weight, causing the product to thicken on the bottom (and to thin on the top). To compensate ...
