Flow of a Polymerizing Fluid Between Two Rotating Concentric Cylinders
Flow of polymerizing fluids involves a complex interaction between momentum, heat and mass transfer. The transport phenomena are interrelated through the dependence of the material parameters (viscosity, specific heat, etc.) on the field variables (extent of polymerization, temperature, and the rate of deformation). These “cross” effects tend to obscure measurements of the material properties, and also make the flow analysis quite complex.
