Abstract: The effects of polymer additives on the break-up of jets in continuous (CIJ)
and drop on demand (DOD) inkjet printing are considered. In continuous
inkjet printing the fluid jet is modulated at close to the Rayleigh
frequency to produce a steady stream of uniform drops, while in drop on
demand printing individual drops are generated by applying an impulse to the

Flows with free surfaces and free boundaries arise in many industrial and biological applications. Examples are coating, polymer processing, ink-jet printing, DNA arrays, spraying, deformation of blood cells, blood flow in arteries and capillaries, and flow in the deep pulmonary alveoli. Most of these flows have two distinguishing features: (1) the fluid is complex (microstructured ); thus, the stress includes a visco-elastic term which is important and sometimes dominant, and (2) the surface forces are comparable to the viscous and elastic ones.
