A Two-Dimensional Asymmetric Flow of a Viscoelastic Fluid in a T-Geometry

Abstract

The flow of rheologically complex fluids in channels and pipes has long been the subject of theoretical and practical investigations. Advances in computer technology and in numerical methods have allowed the consideration of more complicated flow situations and more realistic equations of state. The interest towards problems which are industrially relevant has focused attention on flows associated with abrupt changes in geometry. Numerical treatments of such flows have appeared in the literature1-7 since 1976.
