EXAMPLE 1

CONVERGING FLOW OF A BIRD-CARREAU LIQUID

AT A LOW FLOW RATE

DESCRIPTION

As a first example, we consider the 3/1 axisymmetric converging flow of a shear-thinning

liquid at low volumetric flow rate (Q = 0.5 cm3/s). The flow geometry and the relevant

boundary conditions are displayed in Fig. 1, while the finite element mesh is shown on Fig. 2.

Moreover, the material parameters are:

0 = 1000 poises,

= 0.5 s,

n = 0.4.

outflow

axis of

symmetry

rigid wall

inflow

Q = 0.5

Fig. 1. Flow geometry and boundary conditions.

Fig. 2. Finite element mesh.

In view of the low volumetric flow rate, the viscous behaviour will essentially occur in the

plateau zone of the Bird-Carreau viscosity curve.

RUNNING POLYFLOW At the present stage. Let us recall here that we have selected a filename syntax with “prefix” and “suffix”. it is enough to specify a point where the stream function vanishes.
