Stretching the Jeffreys Liquid: Stressing, Creep and Recovery
The work described here forms part of a larger programme aimed at establishing qualitative features of the response of simple elasticoviscous models in elongational flows. Here we concentrate on the effect of the retardation time and on comparison of the Jeffreys liquid with the Maxwell liquid. In the numerical computations we have chosen parameters which give predictions similar to the results of Laun and Mlinstedt (1976), although we do not expect the simple four-parameter model to give a good quantitative fit to the data. Attention is confined to homogeneous uniaxial elongation, with either the rate of strain or the stress held constant.
