  • Capillary Break-up Rheometry of Low-Viscosity Elastic Fluids ?

    Rodd, Lucy E.; Scott, Timothy P.; Cooper-White, Justin J.; McKinley, Gareth H. (2004-11-01)
    We investigate the dynamics of the capillary thinning and break-up process for low viscosity elastic fluids such as dilute polymer solutions. Standard measurements of the evolution of the midpoint diameter of the necking ...
  • The Inertio-Elastic Planar Entry Flow of Low-Viscosity Elastic Fluids in Micro-fabricated Geometries ?

    Rodd, Lucy E.; Scott, Timothy P.; Boger, David V.; Cooper-White, Justin J.; McKinley, Gareth H. (2004-12-17)
    The non-Newtonian flow of dilute aqueous polyethylene oxide (PEO) solutions through microfabricated planar abrupt contraction-expansions is investigated. The contraction geometries are fabricated from a high-resolution ...
  • Corner Flows in Free Liquid Films ?

    Stocker, Roman; Hosoi, A.E. (2004-08-24)
    A lubrication-flow model for a free film in a corner is presented. The model, written in the hyperbolic coordinate system ξ = x² – y², η = 2xy, applies to films that are thin in the η direction. The lubrication approximation ...
