Springer, 2015. — 169 p. This monograph together with its complimentary volume [Siginer, D. A., Stability of Non-linear Constitutive Formulations for Viscoelastic Fluids, Springer, New York, 2014] in this series is an attempt to give an overall comprehensive view of a complex field, only 60 or so years old, still far from being settled on firm grounds, that of the dynamics of viscoelastic fluid flow and suspension flow in tubes. The monograph on Stability of Non-linear Constitutive Formulations for Viscoelastic Fluid Media covers the development of constitutive equation formulations for viscoelastic fluids in their historical context together with the latest progress made, and this volume covers the state-of-the-art knowledge in predicting the flow of viscoelastic fluids and suspensions in tubes highlighting the historical as well as the most recent findings. Most if not all viscoelastic fluids in industrial manufacturing processes flow in laminar regime through tubes, which are not necessarily circular, at one time or another during the processing of the material. Laminar regime is by far the predominant flow mode for viscoelastic fluids encountered in manufacturing processes, and it is extensively covered in this monograph. Turbulent flow of dilute viscoelastic solutions is a topic which has not received much attention except when related to drag reduction. For particle-laden flows there are very interesting developments in both laminar and turbulent regime, and they are duly covered. It is critically important that the flow of non-linear viscoelastic fluids and suspensions in tubes can be predicted on a sound basis, thus the raison d’eˆtre of this volume. As flow behavior predictions are directly related to the constitutive formulations used, this volume relies heavily on the volume on [Siginer, D. A., Stability of Non-linear Constitutive Formulations for Viscoelastic Fluids, Springer, New York, 2014].
