Polymer simulation (Conseil Régional Aquitaine)
Participants : Roland Becker, Daniela Capatina, Didier Graebling, Julie Joie.
The objective of this project is the development of a robust simulation tool for polymer flows. The special focus is on the understanding of the high-Weissenberg number problem, and to consequently derive numerical schemes with improved robustness, see Section 3.5 .
The Phd-fellowship of Julie Joie is financed by this project. The objective of this work is to initiate the development of robust solvers for polymer liquids and it contributes to Section 5.6 .
