25], based on this concept was developed, inducing perfectly axisymetric creeping flow, showing high distributive and dispersive capabilities without generating excessive pressure drops as shown by Bouquey et al.
Moreover, in order to simulate real industrial processes, the viscosity of the fluids at ambient temperature (experimental temperature) must be similar to that of molten polymers and high enough to ensure creeping flow conditions in the whole measure range involved in the experiments.
pattern was observed at low Re (Re=1) for all step height as per Fig.
Among the topics are a boundary element solution of thermal creeping flow
in a nanometer single mixer, evaluating interface cracks, rotational symmetry applied to boundary element computation for nuclear fusion plasma, fundamental solutions for inverse obstacle acoustic scattering, the volume integral equation method for analyzing scattered waves in an elastic half space, and analyzing layered soil problems with an alternative multi-region boundary element method technique and a new infinite boundary element formulation.
This approach has been used to study the creeping flow
of power law fluids (Bruschke and Advani, 1993; Chen and Wung, 1989; Spelt et al.
The equations of conservation of mass, momentum and energy for steady, creeping flow
(very low Reynolds Number, inertialess) must be solved.
It is now well known that the so-called Stokes paradox does not exist for the creeping flow
of shear-thinning (n < 1) fluids past an unconfined circular cylinder (Tanner, 1993; Marusic-Paloka, 2001) and reliable results are now available for the creeping flow
of power law fluids (Tanner, 1993; Whitney and Rodin, 2001; Ferreira and Chhabra, 2004).
However, no attempt so far has been made to extend this method for quasi-hyperbolic constitutive equations in the limit of creeping flow
To further reduce the difficulty of the problem, creeping flow
The creeping flow
assumption, at the higher flow rate, may no longer be valid and results in the poor agreement between simulation and experiments.
Even though many of the viscoelastic constitutive equations can qualitatively predict the phenomena such as die swell and recirculation during creeping flow
in a channel with abrupt contraction, the predictions from these equations are not always in good quantitative agreement with the corresponding experimental data [6-14].
Benis's analysis was verified experimentally for creeping flow
