    Numerical study of the square-root conformation tensor formulation for confined and free-surface viscoelastic fluid flows

    We present a numerical study of a stabilization method for computing confined and free-surface flows of highly elastic viscoelastic fluids. In this approach, the constitutive equation based on the conformation...

    Primitive chain network simulations for elongational viscosity of bidisperse polystyrene melts

    In spite of the industrial significance, molecular mechanism of the strain hardening saliently observed in bidisperse polymeric liquids has not been elucidated yet. In this study, the multi-chain slip-link sim...

    Separation of particles in non-Newtonian fluids flowing in T-shaped microchannels

    The flow of suspensions through bifurcations is encountered in several applications. It is known that the partitioning of particles at a bifurcation is different from the partitioning of the suspending fluid, ...
