Analysis of the Force Acting on the Sucker Rod by Polymer Solution


With selecting lower-convected Maxwell constitutive equation, polymer solution flow equation in eccentric annulus is established. And the distribution rule of the force acting on the sucker rod by polymer solution has been gained. The result shows the eccentric ratio and the movement velocity of the sucker rod are major influence factors on the radial force. The greater the ratio is, the greater the force of sucker rod is. Then the eccentric wear is easier to appear.
