A useful way to recycle plastics is to melt and mix them to form incompatible polymer blends microstructure of HIPS. An incompatible polymer blend is a new material, combining the desired properties of the two original plastics. A cutaway diagram shows the geometry of the device in which a drop travels in the experiments of J. Waldmeyer (PhD 2008) Waldmeyer,Mackley,Renardy,Renardy 2008 ICR The cross-section on the right shows two sample stream lines of the base flow. If the drop is small, then we can set up the boundary conditions in our simple shear flow from the strain rates of the baseflow. The plan for this presentation ● We begin with a description of the Newtonian VOF-CSF method in the context of drop deformation. Nichols, Hirt, Hotchkiss, Los Alamos Sci. Lab. Rep. LA-8355, 1980.

In a cell that is cut by the interface, fluid property is averaged. We began with SURFER, which treats high Re flows. (open source, S. Zaleski 1997) 1.

The time-dependent UCM eqns have an instability if an eigenvalue of the extra stress tensor is < -G(0). (Rutkevich 1967) This does not happen if the initial data are ‘physical’, but can happen numerically. Newtonian Viscoelastic Interface cell -- Fluid properties are interpolated. -- This 'partly elastic' fluid changes properties as the interface moves, and need not satisfy the stability constraint. We correct this numerical instability by adding a multiple of I to T over interface cells if eval < -G(0). We use our semi-implicit time integration scheme and operator factorization for the constitutive equation -λκ(T(n))2 Our choice of implicit terms allows for the decoupling of variables followed by inversion of tridiagonal matrices T(n+1) -λκ(T(n))2 VOF-PROST runs on shared-memory machines.

If the filament were constrained not to break then high stresses there would pull the ends together. 1D surface tension driven breakup of an Oldroyd- B filament in vacuum never breaks. (M.Renardy 1994,1995) Does the Boger fluid remain Oldroyd-B when the filament thins a long time? Effect of shear flow history A solution in Stokes flow does not depend on the initial condition. This uniqueness is lost when additional effects such as viscoelasticity are added (or for instance, inertia. IJMF 2008).
