Mathematical modelling and numerical computations for fluid problems arising from industry and engineering
The motion of liquid jets and droplets are fundamental phenomena in many industrial applications such as fiber spinning and inkjet printing. In this talk, I will first discuss the stretching a viscous thread subject to non-isothermal effects. The minimum stretching force to get pinch-off for the thread is determined and the effects of non-isothermal condition are examined. Secondly, the stability of two-phase viscoelastic liquid jets is analyzed. It shows that the presence of the outer fluid produces more secondary droplets in the well-known beads-on-a-string structure. Finally, if time allows, I will also talk about the numerical methods for solving Poisson-Nernst-Planck system and related models.
