On the falling of objects in non-Newtonian fluids Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The falling of a lamina in between two parallel plates containing a fluid of second grade is studied. The velocity of the lamina and the fluid are determined by solving the mixed initial-boundary value problem using Laplace transform. Explicit exact solutions are obtained for the velocity of the lamina and the fluid. Next, the falling of a cylinder in a tube containing a fluid of second grade is analyzed using Laplace transform, and once again exact solutions are found. © 1994 Università degli Studi di Ferrara.
