Abstract:

Theoretical and experimental studies of a wide range of problems in the rheometry of viscoelastic fluids and solids are described. Domain perturbation analyses and numerical computations are used to analyze the fluid motion between concentric and eccentric cylinders. Experiments involving free surface measurements complement the analysis and lead to the determination of parameters which characterize the fluid. Author
