427/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation The relaxation time, aka “will I run out of patience before the flow ?” About 10d-12 for water; more than a day for glass. Relaxation Time and Deborah Number The Deborah number, aka “I’ve been waiting enough !!!” Setting the time of the experiment will determine the behaviour of the matter. Solution relating shear stress to rate of strain: the stress at any time depends on the whole strain history; the further back in time, the more memory fades Maxwell Model: Young modulus and viscosity gathered together “Memory” of the fluid
527/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation Some (not so obvious…) effects of elasticity High extensional viscosity/shear viscosity ratio: the open siphon effect Releasing tension along the streamlines: the Die Swell Supporting tension along the SL: Rod Climbing Visualizing different Deborah numbers: 9 to 1 mixture of cornstarch and water
627/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation …leads to the Upper Convective Maxwell model for the constitutive equation.T is total extra-stress and Gamma-dot is the rate of strain. Modelling disperse polymer solutions I: UCM and Kelvin (late XIXth century) The Maxwell model for shear flows… The upper convective derivative takes into account the deformation induced by the rate of strain, a feature which is typical of elastic fluids, and adds to the usual material derivative describing the flux. The Maxwell model above is one of two basic ways of “mixing” the Young modulus with the Newtonian viscosity. Another one is the Kelvin model Let’s combine them…
727/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation Modelling disperse polymer solutions II: Oldroyd-B (1950) …and we find the Oldroyd-B model Physically the pure elastic molecules are replaced by bulks of particles and fluid, and these will be the clusters swimming in the solvent. This replacement leads to the splitting of the extra-stress into its solvent and polymeric contributions. The former is plugged as diffusive term into the balance of momentum; the latter is what is practically computed in the constitutive equation, here in its dimensionless form. Solvent vs Total viscosity ratio Weissenberg number, measure of elasticity of the fluid
827/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation The equations of motions for the bulks include some Brownian forces; these Brownian forces depends on a probability density function, say q; A Fokker-Planck equation (diffusion equation for q) is derived. Modelling disperse polymer solutions III: Oldroyd-B at the microscope m2m2 m1m1 r1r1 r2r2 F1F1 Fluid Bulk R = r 2 - r 1 F2F2 A common expression relating stress and the product RF is due to Kramers: Combining this and the FP equation we find the so called Giesekus expr. The whole point is the choice for F : F hookean means Oldroyd-B. Unfortunately this leads to an infinite extensibility of the dumbbells!!! Another problem is a discontinuity in the extensional viscosity.
927/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation Modelling disperse polymer solutions IV: FENE models FENE FENE – P (Peterlin) FENE – CR (Chilcott - Rallison) Limiting the dumbbells extensibility through bounding functions; overcoming the discontinuity in the extensional viscosity. Mainly suitable for extensional flows. Combining the Kramers, Giesekus and the FENE-P we obtain The quantity R 0 is the maximum extension the spring can reach. It predicts constant shear flow, a non- zero 1 st normal stress difference and the extension is bounded. The model is shear- thinning; the extensional viscosity exhibit continuous dependence on the extensional rate. Being shear thinning is suitable for shear flows. The FENE-CR replaces the expression above by the following: It presents the same features as Old-B but the extensibility is bounded.
1027/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation Modelling concentrated polymer solutions: the PTT model (1977) In describing these melts, is essentials to represent in a proper way the entanglement between molecules. The PTT looks at the polymer molecules and their interaction as a network. Strands are linked through rigid junctions. Slip is the cause of dynamics of the strands, modelled as follows: Shear thinning; extensional bounded; 1 st normal stress predicted. This makes PTT a suitable model for shear flows of polymer melts. Stress overshoots at high strain rates in elongational flows are also fairly reproduced. The absence of 2 nd NSD is the main limit for extensional simulations. Multiplying both sides by rho and averaging, we obtain the Const. Eq. f is the probability distribution of the junctions; here is its rate of change balance, with g and h rate of creation and destruction of the junctions.
1127/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation Modelling concentrated polymer solutions II: the tube model (1978) Developed by Doi and Edwards, translates the interactions between molecules as topological constraints. The presence of other chains surrounding a test molecule will confine the allowed configurations within a tube of a certain diameter. The primitive chain AB reptates; part of it leaves the original tube for another. This is measured by a probability distribution function, say theta: Averaged (in space) solution Disentanglement time comparison Stress-orientation tensor Q(E) relation Psi is the key; the reptation dynamics is responsible for the change of conformation when elastic effects are taken into account..
1227/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation Modelling concentrated polymer solutions III: the Pom-Pom model (1998) McLeish and Larson “mounted” arms at the end of primitive chain, which became the “backbone” of the “Pom-Pom molecule”. These arms will be then “released” and “withdrawn” by the backbone, but only when the BB is fully stretched. It describes very accurately Low Density PolyEthylenes dynamics, whose irregular branches give raise to high level of shear thinning and strain hardening. Evolution equation for the orientation tensor Evolution equation for the backbone stretch Evolution equation for the arms motion Derivation of the stress tensor Three main problems affect this model: 1) discontinuities in Grad u in steady flows; 2) the orientation tensor is unbounded at high strain rates; 3) 2 nd NSD is not predicted
1327/11/2007 Bonn, Institut fuer Numerische Simulation Modelling concentrated polymer solutions IV: the XPP model (2001) Viscoelastic Stress Backbone stretch and stretch relaxation time Extra Function Relaxation time tensor Blackwell modification: a smoother approach to the maximum BB stretch by mean of withdrawing arms before such maximum stretch is achieved Tackling issue # 1 Tackling issue # 2 High strain rates means the 1 st term totally outweighs the 2 nd one; the result is that the stretching effect is predominant enough to avoid unbounded orientation. The macroscopic dependence of the slip tensor on the stress is the physical reason. Tackling issue # 3 The Giesekus - like 2 nd order term is responsible for predicting 2 nd NSD. ARE WE HAPPY ??? SADLY NOT…

Higher We calculation achieved for OLD-B. EXTRUDATE SWELL A viscoelastic fluid is extruded from a pipe. The A viscoelastic fluid is extruded from a pipe. The Stress gradient at the die is responsible for the extensional swelling. Capturing this gradient, as well as the free surface’s behaviour, is crucial. Extrusion processes in food and manufacturing industries are the main industrial applications FILAMENT STRETCHING FILAMENT STRETCHING A viscoelastic fluid is confined between two plates. When these plates are pulled apart, the fluid stretches. Tracking the free surface and describing the necking effect at the centre are the main challenges. This phenomenon is common in fibre spinning and industrial processes involving thin films. Velocity extrapolated on the FS along the vertical gridlines. Nodes shifted. New transfinite mapping built. Moving forward in time.

Ongoing and doming next (hopefully…) 2) Improve the MATRIX-LOG version ( problem with some stress profiles) and make it model independent (so far just Oldroyd-B) 3) Gather the two approaches
