In this work, we investigate the effect of the introduction of a stress diffusive term into the classical OldroydB
constitutive equation
on the
numerical stability
of timedependent
viscoelastic flow
calculations. The channel
Poiseuille flow
at Re ⪢ 1 and O(1) We is chosen as a test problem. Through a
linear stability
analysis, we demonstrate that the introduction of a small amount of (dimensionless) diffusivity, typically of the order 10−3, does not affect the critical eigenmodes of the viscoelastic OrrSommerfeld problem appreciably. However, a diffusive term of that magnitude is shown to have a significant influence on the singular eigenmodes of the classical OldroydB model, associated with the continuum spectra. A finite amplitude perturbation is constructed as a linear superposition of the
eigenvectors
corresponding to the most unstable eigenvalues of the problem. This is superimposed on the steady
Poiseuille flow
solution to provide the initial conditions for timedependent simulations. The
numerical algorithm
involves a fully spectral spatial discretization and a semiimplicit
second order
integration in time. For the OldroydB fluid, depending on the magnitude of the initial perturbation, numerical instabilities set in at relatively short times while the components of the conformation tensor increase monotonically in magnitude with time. Introduction of a diffusive term into this model is shown to stabilize the calculations remarkably, and for a threedimensional simulation with Re = 5000 and We = 1, no instabilities were observed even at very large times. The effect of the magnitude of the diffusivity on the stability and the flow dynamics is addressed through a direct comparison of the results with those obtained for the OldroydB model.

...The idea that subgrid scales may be generated by advection and the use of stress diffusion to dampen those out are not new, and go back to the theoretical study of ElKareh and Leal [15] (where it is even speculated that the coupled momentumstress equations may be illposed without some amount of diffusivity), and the numerical study of Sureshkumar and Beris [
