Nonlinear Phenomna In Flows Of Viscoelastic Polymer Fluids

by Books
Nonlinear Phenomena in Flows of Viscoelastic Polymer Fluids presents detailed studies of flows of elastic liquids, from theory, through experiment, to applications. Falling into the category of elastic liquids in particular, are the melts and concentrated solutions of such flexible chain polymers as polyethylene, polyisobutylene and polypropylene, all of which are widely used in polymer processing.
The reading material is presented with an emphasis on practical applications. experimental methods, experimental device schemes, principal rheological effects and dependencies are considered as are the constitutive equations consistent with thermodynamics which are able to describe experimental data and the methods of evaluation of rheological parameters within these equations. numerous comparisons are made between predictions and experimental data that demonstrate which properties of the constitutive equations are particularly related to one or another effect Applications of results to industrial problems are also discussed. This book will be of interest to those working in research and development in the field of polymer processing, as well as in the food and oil industries.
