Mathematical Analysis of Viscoelastic Flows by Michael Renardy pdf free download. Fluids with complex microstructure, such as polymers, suspensions, and granular materials, abound in daily life and in many industrial processes, e.g., in the chemical, food, and oil industries. The phenomena and mathematical models for such fluids are much more varied and complex than those of traditional Newtonian fluid dynamics. This monograph presents an overview of mathematical problems, methods, and results arising in the study of flows of polymeric liquids, such as molten plastics, lubricants, paints, and many biological fluids.

The role of numerical simulation in the study of such flows has increased tremendously over the past 15 years, and the phenomena and numerical difficulties in complex flows, e.g., instabilities, boundary layers, and singularities, have led to new and challenging mathematical questions. The monograph begins with an introduction to phenomena observed in viscoelastic flows (Chapter 1), the formulation of mathematical equations to model such flows (Chapter 2), and the behavior of various models in simple flows (Chapter 3).

We then review results on basic existence questions (Chapter 4). Chapter 5 provides a brief introduction to some of the issues arising in numerical simulation. Chapter 6 discusses the asymptotics of the high Weisscnberg limit, and Chapter 7 uses these asymptotic ideas to study the behavior near reentrant corners, which arise, for instance, in contraction flows. Chapter 8 discusses the analysis of flow instabilities. In Chapter 9, we discuss change of type in the equations of viscoelastic flow and applications to melt fracture and delayed die swell. Chapter 10 is concerned with jets and filaments and their breakup.

The monograph is based on a series of lectures presented at the CBMS-NSF conference on Mathematical Analysis of Viscoelastic Flows held at the University of Delaware. June 19-23, 1999. I thank the National Science Foundation for support of this conference and for support of much of the research reviewed in this monograph. Thanks are also due to the organizers of the conference, David Olagunju and Yuriko Renardy, and to Pamela Cook and Gilberto Schleiniger, who made the local arrangements.
