Flow of a viscoelastic fluid between eccentric cylinders
In Part I (1) we have discussed the flow of an incompressible non-Newtonian fluid in the annular region between two infinite cylinders with parallel axes, which results from the steady longitudinal motion of one cylinder relative to the other. The motion was considered to be sufficiently slow so that the second-order Rivlin-Ericksen constitutive equation is applicable. In the present paper we consider the problem in which both cylinders are stationary and the flow results from a uniform constant longitudinal pressure gradient.
