Time-dependent Poiseuille flows of visco-elasto-plastic fluids. (English) Zbl 1106.76011
Summary: A general constitutive equation for the stress tensor of non-Newtonian fluids is presented, which contains many well-known constitutive models, e.g., Oldroyd-B, Maxwell-A, Maxwell-B, Johnson-Segalman and Bingham models. We examine this constitutive equation with reference to a simple plane fluctuating flow of incompressible fluid through a horizontal channel bounded by two infinite parallel plates under the exertion of a periodic longitudinal pressure gradient. Numerical solutions are obtained and discussed, especially in connection with viscous, elastic and plastic behavior of non-Newtonian fluids.
