Michael Renardy - Professor Michael Renardy's research concerns the mathematical analysis of viscoelastic fluids. Fluids such as molten plastics, foods, pastes and biological fluids are not described adequately by the Navier-Stokes equations. The equations used to model such fluids raise numerous new mathematical questions regarding, for instance, existence of solutions, flow stability, asymptotic behavior, singularities, and control.

The breakup behavior of jets is highly dependent on the constitutive behavior of a fluid. The figure shows jet profiles close to breakup for a number of different fluid models.
