Viscoelasticity and Rheology covers the court cases of a symposium through an identical identify, performed by means of the maths examine middle held on the college of Wisconsin-Madison on October 16-18, 1984. The contributions to the symposium are divided into 4 extensive different types, particularly, experimental effects, constitutive theories, mathematical research, and computation.
This 16-chapter paintings starts with experimental issues, together with the movement of bubbles in viscoelastic fluids, wave propagation in viscoelastic solids, flows via contractions, and cold-drawing of polymers. the following chapters overlaying constitutive theories discover the molecular theories for polymer recommendations and melts in accordance with statistical mechanics, the use and barriers of approximate constitutive theories, a comparability of constitutive legislation in response to quite a few molecular theories, community theories and a few in their merits relating to experiments, and types for viscoplasticity. those themes are by way of discussions of the lifestyles, regularity, and improvement of singularities, switch of variety, interface difficulties in viscoelasticity, lifestyles for preliminary worth difficulties and regular flows, and propagation and improvement of singularities. the remainder chapters care for the numerical simulation of move among eccentric cylinders, circulate round spheres and bubbles, the opening strain challenge, and a evaluate of computational difficulties concerning numerous constitutive laws.
This booklet will end up important to chemical engineers, researchers, and students.
