Usage


In science:

In the case of steady shear, a viscoelastic fluid produces a streamwise elastic stress, creating a positive (first) normal stress difference. 2 The primary (azimuthal) flow in spherical Couette flow is a type of of circular viscometric 3 flow.
Turbulent Elasticity of the Solar Convective Zone and the Taylor Number Puzzle
A viscometric flow is a simple shear flow so that the relative-right Cauchy-Green tensor can be written as the sum of the unit tensor and the first and second Rivlin-Eriksen tensors.
Turbulent Elasticity of the Solar Convective Zone and the Taylor Number Puzzle
It is the normal stress difference N1 (due to the elastic streamwise tension stress) of a viscoelastic fluid under steady shear that is largely responsible for the secondary flow reversal in viscometric flows such as our laboratory example.
