Non-Newtonian fluids are found in a great variety of processes in the polymer, food, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, household, and fine chemicals industries. Examples of these fluids are coatings, paints, yogurt, ketchup, colloidal suspensions, aqueous suspensions of drugs, lotions, creams, shampoo, and suspensions of peptides and proteins, to mention a few.
The Polymer Flow Module, released with COMSOL Multiphysics® version 5.6, brings features for the modeling and simulation of non-Newtonian fluid flow with viscoelastic, thixotropic, shear thickening, and shear thinning properties.
This webinar gives an introduction to the Polymer Flow Module and presents the new functionality for fluid flow in version 5.6.
This event will be held online.
