On viscoelastic instability in polymeric filaments

Henrik Koblitz Rasmussen, Ole Hassager

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


The 3D Lagrangian Integral Method is used to simulate the effects of surface tension on the viscoelastic end-plate instability, occuring in the rapid extension of some polymeric filaments between parallel plates. It is shovn that the surface tension delays the onset of the instability. Furthermore it is demonstrated that surface tension plays a key role in the selection of the most unstable mode
