A new model is proposed to mimic the response of a class of seemingly viscoplastic materials. Using the proposed model, the steady, fully developed flow of the fluid is studied in a cylindrical pipe. The semi-inverse approach is applied to obtain an analytical solution for the velocity profile. The model is used to fit the shear-stress data of several supposedly viscoplastic materials reported in the literature. A numerical procedure is developed to solve the governing ODE and the procedure is validated...

This paper is dedicated to a regularity criterion for the 2D MHD equations and viscoelastic equations. We prove that if the magnetic field B, respectively the local deformation gradient F, satisfies $\nabla B,\nabla F\in {L}^{q}(0,T;{L}^{p}\left(\mathbb{R}\xb2\right))$ for 1/p + 1/q = 1 and 2 < p ≤ ∞, then the corresponding local solution can be extended beyond time T.

Most three dimensional constitutive relations that have been developed to describe the behavior of bodies are correlated against one dimensional and two dimensional experiments. What is usually lost sight of is the fact that infinity of such three dimensional models may be able to explain these experiments that are lower dimensional. Recently, the notion of maximization of the rate of entropy production has been used to obtain constitutive relations based on the choice of the stored energy and rate...

In this paper, a nonlinear problem corresponding to a simplified Oldroyd-B model without convective terms is considered. Assuming the domain to be a convex polygon, existence of a solution is proved for small relaxation times. Continuous piecewise linear finite elements together with a Galerkin Least Square (GLS) method are studied for solving this problem. Existence and a priori error estimates are established using a Newton-chord fixed point theorem, a posteriori error estimates are also derived....

This work is concerned with the study of the flow of an incompressible viscoelastic fluid of White-Metzner type. These models lead to systems of partial differential equations that are evolutionary, are globally well posed. The objective of this article is to prove the local and global existence of solutions of these systems.
