1208-10/08/2007EPFDC 2007, University of Birmingham Remarks about the code In order to use (1) to eliminate the velocity, we have to premultiply by the inverse of H, and then by D; so we’ll finally obtain the following equation to recover the pressure. The matrix acting on the pressure now is known as the UZAWA (U) operator. -OIFS 1 (Operator Integration Factor Splitting, 1 st order) is used to discretize the material derivative of velocity; Euler ( 1 st order ) for the stress in the const. eq.; - LUST ( Local Upwinding Spectral Technique) is used ( see [1] ); - To invert H, a Schur complement method is used to reduce the size of the problem, then a direct LU factorization is performed. - To invert U, since is symmetric, Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient methods is used; - The constitutive equation is solved via BiConjugate Gradient Stabilized (non-symm); U

1308-10/08/2007EPFDC 2007, University of Birmingham Future Work - Fix the stress profiles and then calculate the correct drag ; - Testing the log-conformation method for higher We and different geometries; - Find a general expression of the constitutive equation to apply the matrix logarithm method to a broader class of constitutive models (i.e. XPP and PTT ) in order to simulate polymer melts flows; - Eventually join the free surface “wet” approach with the log-conformation method in a SEM framework to investigate the extrudate swell and the filament stretching problems
