Abstract

Flow of a viscoelastic fluid in round pipes is analyzed for the case where the pressure gradient is oscillatory with varying amplitude. The fluid is modelled according to Phan-Thien-Tanner's constitutive equation. The analysis is carried out by using the perturbation method in which a material parameter is considered small. Velocity field and other kinematic and dynamic variables are evaluated for a range of relevant parameters. The results are compared with the base Newtonian and linear Maxwell flows. The effect of the PTT model in these type of flows is highlighted.
