Book Series: Numerical Methods for Non-Newtonian Fluids

Most recent volume

Volume 16. Numerical Methods for Non-Newtonian Fluids

Published: 20th December 2010 Series Volume Editors: R. Glowinski Jinchao Xu Series Editor: Philippe Ciarlet

Non-Newtonian flows and their numerical simulations have generated an abundant literature, as well as many publications and references to which can be found in this volume’s articles. This abundance of publications can be explained by the fact that non-Newtonian fluids occur in many real life situations: the food industry, oil & gas industry, chemical, civil and mechanical engineering, the bio-Sciences, to name just a few. Mathematical and numerical analysis of non-Newtonian fluid flow models provide challenging problems to partial differential equations specialists and applied computational mathematicians alike.

This volume offers investigations. Results and conclusions that will no doubt be useful to engineers and computational and applied mathematicians who are focused on various aspects of non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics.
