Experimental investigation of shock-induced breakup of single viscoelastic droplets 
Absract (alternative):
The present work experimentally studies the breakup of single viscoelastic droplets subject to shock-induced gas flow. Millimeter-sized droplets, made from aqueous solutions of carbonxymethylcellulose and polyacrylamideare, are examined. Both non-Newtonian liquids share similar shear viscosities while the latter shows a stronger elasticity. The droplets are ejected discretely into a shock tube inside which shock waves of varying strength are generated to achieve different Weber numbers. The drop...    »
