Stable finite element schemes are developed for the solution of the equations modeling the flow of viscoelastic fluids. In contrast with classical statements of these equations, which introduce the stress as a primary variable, these schemes explicitly involve the deformation tensor and elastic energy. Energy estimates and existence of solutions to the discrete problem are established for schemes of arbitrary order without any restrictions on the time step, mesh size, or Weissenberg number… 
Derivation and numerical approximation of hyperbolic viscoelastic flow systems: Saint-Venant 2D equations for Maxwell fluids
We pursue here the development of models for complex (viscoelastic) fluids in shallow free-surface gravity flows which was initiated by [Bouchut-Boyaval, M3AS (23) 2013] for 1D (translation

Approximation of Time-Dependent Viscoelastic Fluid Flow: SUPG Approximation
TLDR
This article considers the numerical approximation to the time-dependent viscoelasticity equations with an Oldroyd B constitutive equation and analyzes both the semidiscrete and fully discrete numerical approximations.
FREE-ENERGY-DISSIPATIVE SCHEMES FOR THE OLDROYD-B MODEL
TLDR
The prototypical Oldroyd-B model is considered, for which a free energy dissipation holds, and it is shown under which assumptions such a dissipation is also satisfied for the numerical scheme.
Defect correction method for viscoelastic fluid flows at high Weissenberg number
We study a defect correction method for the approximation of viscoelastic fluid flow. In the defect step, the constitutive equation is computed with an artificially reduced Weissenberg parameter for
Approximation of time‐dependent, viscoelastic fluid flow: Crank‐Nicolson, finite element approximation
In this article we analyze a fully discrete approximation to the time dependent viscoelasticity equations with an Oldroyd B constitutive equation in ℝ$^{\acute{d}}$, $\acute{d}$ = 2, 3. We use a
On hydrodynamics of viscoelastic fluids
In this paper, we study a hydrodynamic system describing fluids with viscoelastic properties. After a brief examination of the relations between several models, we shall concentrate on a few
