Mehrdad Massoudi Phuoc X. Tran Abstract: In this paper, we modify the thermodynamically compatible third-grade fluid model by introducing
a shear-rate- and volume-fraction-dependent viscosity into the equation.With this new model, it is possible to
predict not only the normal stress differences, but also the variable viscosity observed in many suspensions.We
study the Couette–Poiseuille flow of such a fluid between two horizontal flat plates. The steady fully developed
flow equations are made dimensionless and are solved numerically; the effects of different dimensionless
numbers are discussed.Get the paper in its entirety as 17-CNA-005.pdf |
