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.

    is needed. e.g. drop retraction when shearing stops.

•We reconstruct the interface from the surface where C jumps
•Body force includes the interfacial tension force
•Periodic boundary conditions in the x and y directions, and no
slip at the walls z=0, z=1

    1. The interface is reconstructed from C(i,j,k,t) as a
    plane in each 3D cell, or a line in a 2D cell:

  In a cell that is cut by the interface, C = volume fraction of fluid 1.

           •PLIC – piecewise linear interface reconstruction
           •Lagrangian advection yields C at each timestep

on the momentum equations, and an explicit

The explicit time integration scheme is not feasible for
low Re drop-breakup simulations.

             The explicit scheme is stable when
    Dt << time scale of viscous diffusion: mesh2 / viscosity

       Implicit scheme would be slow because variables
             are coupled  large full matrix

   Positive definite property of the extra stress tensor
   is retained in our algorithm.
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

                 Interface cell
                -- Fluid properties are interpolated.
                -- This 'partly elastic' fluid changes properties
as the interface moves, and need not satisfy the stability

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

Our choice of implicit terms allows for the decoupling of variables
followed by inversion of tridiagonal matrices

A new breakup scenario for a viscoelastic drop in a Newtonian matrix was found
experimentally at visc ratio 1.5           Verhulst thesis 2008

   Elongation and necking to t’=100 is
      followed by interfacial tension forming
      dumbbells joined by a filament.

   The viscoelastic filament thins but
     instead of breaking, pulls the ends to     A second end-pinching elongates the
     coalescle.                                    drop more than in the first.
                                                Beads form on the filament.
                                                Filament breaks.
  3D Numerical simulations at a higher Ca=0.65, same Ded=0.92 , forms
    dumbbells and a uniform filament. The dumbbells end-pinch numerically
    when the filament is under-resolved.

Large stresses build up at the neck by t’=35 and
   grows on the filament side. Interfacial tension
   forms dumbbell shape.
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.

  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).

 NE-VE at visc ratio 0.75, Ca=0.5, Dem=1.54, breaks up

                … but not when the shear rate is ramped up in small steps.
Numerical simulations with the one-mode Giesekus model with model
parameter 0.1.
The same level of viscoelastic stress is associated with breakup or settling

                             The same level of viscoelastic stress occurs with
                               breakup or settling
