The motion of a deformable drop in a second-order fluid

  • P. C.-H. Chan (a1) and L. G. Leal (a1)
Abstract

The cross-stream migration of a deformable drop in a unidirectional shear flow of a second-order fluid is considered. Expressions for the particle velocity due to the separate effects of deformation and viscoelastic rheology are obtained. The direction and magnitude of migration are calculated for the particular cases of Poiseuille flow and simple shear flow and compared with experimental data.
