A study was undertaken to numerically simulate the flow of highly viscous fluid. Simulating a highly viscous flow within a parallel plate plastometer will hopefully begin to bridge the gaps in the current knowledge of these viscous models. The modeling of this flow was performed using the canned code FiDAP from Fluent Inc. The results are compared with the analytical results calculated by NASA Marshall researchers.
