We report measurements of the effective tensile strength FcFc of commercial “multigrade” oils (in the SAE viscosity grades 5W-30 and 10W-40) over a range of temperatures TT, w...

Rheology of Dilute Polymer Solutions and Engine Lubricants in High Deformation Rate Extensional Flows Produced by Bubble Collapse

Journal Article
Barrow, M. S., Brown, S. W. J., Cordy, S., Williams, P. R., & Williams, R. L. (2004)
Rheology of Dilute Polymer Solutions and Engine Lubricants in High Deformation Rate Extensional Flows Produced by Bubble Collapse. Journal of Fluids Engineering, 126(2), 162. https://doi.org/10.1115/1.1667889
We report a study of liquid jets formed by the collapse of bubbles under cavitationgenerated pressure waves. Such jets involve an extensional flow which is characterized by hi...
