Kim (45) solved the continuity and momentum equations in a Lagrangian frame for the study of the free oscillations of a spherical bubble in an Upper-Convective Maxwell liquid. He implemented the Galerkin-finite element method for solving these equations and compared some of his results with those obtained by Fogler and Goddard (32).
