Abstract: The deformation of a slender bubble in a Carreau-Yasuda liquid in a simple extensional and creeping flow has been theoretically studied. With the assumption of a constant pressure in the liquid, the deformation problem can be described by an ordinary differential equation, which was numerically solved. Analytical expressions for the local radius were obtained close to the center and the end of the bubble. The results for the shape of the bubble are presented as a function of four governing dimensionless numbers. The relevance of this work to polymer devolatilization and foam plastics is discussed.
