Viscoelastic flow through a channel with a flexible wall
Application ID: 101731
This model represents a test case of a flow in an elastic tube which is present in several applications. This specific case models viscoelastic flow and represents steady flow in a channel in which part of the upper wall is replaced by an elastic plate subjected to an external pressure. The model reproduces the results reported in the literature.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the CFD Module, or Polymer Flow Module and
- either the MEMS Module, Multibody Dynamics Module, or Structural Mechanics Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
