Extensional thin layer flows

Abstract:

In this thesis we derive and solve equations governing the flow of slender threads and sheets of viscous fluid. Our method is to solve the Navier-Stokes equations and free surface conditions in the form of asymptotic expansions in powers of the inverse aspect ratio of the fluid, i.e. the ratio of a typical thickness to a typical length. In the first chapter we describe some of the many industrial processes in which such flows are important, and summarise some of the related work which has be...
