Abstract:

Problems of flow of viscoelastic liquids were considered emphasizing the issues generated by the fluids elasticity, which gives rise to hyperbolicity and waves. These studies are summarized with many studies of drag reductions using water lubrication, riblets and polymers. These studies will be summarized in my new book with Yuriko Renardy TWO-FLUID DYNAMICS. We started a computational numerical effort aimed at studying the motion of particles in fluids using the Navier Stokes equations and the particle equations of motion.
