A Hybrid Stabilized Finite Element/Finite Difference Method for Unsteady Viscoelastic Flows

Abstract

The Oldroyd-B constitutive equation is used for the numerical simulation of unsteady incompressible viscoelastic flows. A novelty treatment is presented for the incompressibility constraint of the incompressible viscoelastic flow by using the modified continuity equation which allows using equal-order interpolation polynomials for all variables. The… (More)
