Abstract

A semi-Lagrangian finite volume scheme for solving viscoelastic flow problems is presented. A staggered grid arrangement is used in which the dependent variables are located at different mesh points in the computational domain. The convection terms in the momentum and constitutive equations are treated using a semi-Lagrangian approach in which particles on a regular grid are traced backwards over a single time-step. The method is applied to the 4 : 1 planar contraction problem for an Oldroyd B fluid for both creeping and inertial flow conditions. The development of vortex behaviour with increasing values of We is analyzed.
