In this talk, the effects of fluid elasticity on the dynamicsof filament thinning and drop breakup processes areinvestigated in a cross-slot microchannel. Elasticity effectsare examined using dilute aqueous polymeric solutions ofmolecular weight (MW) ranging from 1.5 x 10(^3) to 1.8 Ã— 10(^7). Results for polymeric fluids are compared to those f...
