Elasticity Number

Elasticity number is proportional to { (elastic force) / (inertial force) } and is used in momentum transfer in general and viscoelastic flow calculations in particular. It is normally defined in the following form :

Elasticity Number

 

Where:

r

=

Pipe/conduit radius

mu

=

Viscosity

rho

=

Density

theta

=

relaxation time
