- Published 2006

As in the case of viscous fluids, very good approximations to exact results for viscoelastic fluids can be obtained from purely irrotational studies of stability. Here we consider RT instability (§21.1) and capillary instability (§21.2) of an Oldroyd B fluid. Viscoelastic effects enter into the irrotational analysis of RT instability through the normal stress at the free surface. For capillary instability, the short waves are stabilized by surface tension, and an irrotational viscoelastic… CONTINUE READING
