On hydrodynamics of viscoelastic fluids

Fang Hua Lin, Chun Liu, Ping Zhang

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we study a hydrodynamic system describing fluids with viscoelastic properties. After a brief examination of the relations between several models, we shall concentrate on a few analytical issues concerning them. In particular, we establish local existence and global existence (with small initial data) of classical solutions for an Oldroyd system without an artificially postulated damping mechanism.
