then I’ll write my belated thesis.
a new word for me  ::)

For me too. First I thought of ‘retarded’ but it’s not exactly what I meant. :green:

As for me, I'm doing a course in German this montn (almost everyday in the mornings)
Then I'm to spend a month in Azerbaijan, I should visit my grandparents and all the friends living there.
Then I will be preparing for school in August.

In Goethe-Institut.
I loved it very much :) The course is entirely in German so finally I could get used to the way it sounds. It's the first time in these 5 years I've been learning German when I've got the chance to express all my feelings and ideas in German. That's amazing :)
What is your book about?

Is this a correspondence course?

The book… Maths, you know. Attractors for motion equations of viscoelastic media. :) They say each formula included in a book halves the amount of potential readers; it turns out no one will read ours. ;D

Nope, I've got to get up early in order commute there via underground.

Maths... Even though I'm not so bad at it, as compared to the rest of the class, I couldn't understand a word of the post you've written, except for the last sentence, no doubt. ;)
I mean I've no idea what "viscoelastic media" is. :)

It turns out you’re in Germany? Cool! :yes:

Fluids that are viscous and elastic at once. :D They come up not very often in everyday life, but provide mathematicians with lots of complicated equations.

Sounds like just a more realistic model. If I remember correctly, such models are frequently used in technological calculations.

Actually, it's in the hub of St. Petersburg, which is full of strangers, just like Germany :) Whereas I live quite far from it.

The problem is that I was familiar with all the words in the post but couldn't take an idea in a whole in.

If you wonder, I can go into details a bit. The motion of fluids is described by some mechanical equations and one extra equation known as the constitutive law. This law can be deduced from various reasons and ‘contains’ specific properties of a fluid. Lots of fluids obey so called Newton’s constitutive law, which leads to Navier–Stokes equations: these are viscous fluids. Some other fluids (e. g. certain polymer solutions) display essentially different behaviour: under different conditions they may exhibit properties of a fluid and of a solid body. These media require other constitutive laws that are generally more complicated than Newton’s one.

This is the stuff we usually write in introductions to the articles. :) We are not interested in physics and mostly deal with existence theorems. (The usefulness of existence results can be argued. ;D Some people say they already know that water flows.) I came across the only ‘live’ example of a non-Newtonian fluid (flour suspension, if I’m not mistaken) in the Big Bang Theory. ;D

The Goethe Institute seems to have spread itself considerably. :) I thought it was German.

Good night then! Thanks for reviving the topic! :)

Actually any liquid can behave as an elastic body. It's just a matter of specific conditions when such behaviour cannot be ignored already.
e. g. certain polymer solutions
Also glass melts, for instance.

I believe you are right. For example, the Newtonian law is applicable only in the case of moderate velocities.

It restitutes its previous form after a deformation.

In this case I recommend visiting a special section at LF where people speak German. By the way Ellidi is very active there.

I see, you’ve been talking a bit about liquids here. How about non-Newtonian ones? Did you try to make some by putting starch and water together (same as of quicksand type)? Unfortunately, I don’t remember accurate proportion.

Please, correct me. I feel unsure.

That again...  :) All real liquids are non-Newtonian, that's just a matter of when they begin to manifest elactic properties.

Well, you could have to understand I mean quite non-Newtonian. :negozhe:

Also, I updated that msg.

Water does not exhibit elastic properties under normal conditions. It’s just viscous.
