A thermosyphon model with a viscoelastic binary fluid

Angela Jimenez-Casas, Mario Castro

In this work we consider a viscoelastic fluid with the same transfer law across the loop, as in previous works we add a solute to the fluid. For this binary fluid, we consider the thermodiffusion (also known as Soret effect) to obtain the well-posedness of the mathematical formulation of this thermosyphon model, which is a generalization of the previous models.
