Flow of viscoelastic fluids between plates rotating about distinct axes Academic Article uri icon


  • We discuss the flow of BKZ fluids in an orthogonal rheometer. Some analytical results are proved, and numerical solutions are obtained for the Currie model. These solutions show a boundary layer behavior at high Reynolds numbers and the possibility of discontinuous solutions or nonexistence at high Weissenberg numbers. © 1986 Steinkopff.
