We theoretically analyze the interaction between a viscoelastic fluid flow, whose constitutive equation is the simplified Phan–Thien–Tanner model, and a deformable slender shallow microchannel. The microchannel top wall displacement is analyzed considering two cases: a) as a thin plate, using the Kirchhoff–Love theory, and b) as a thick plate, based on the Reissner–Mindlin theory. The mathematical model is nondimensionalized, and dimensionless parameters related to problem physics arise that control the fluid–structure interaction. The governing equations that describe the hydrodynamic field are simplified using the lubrication theory, and the displacement of the top wall is analyzed for each plate theory, relating the hydrodynamic pressure and the volumetric flow rate. These equations are implicit in the pressure and are solved numerically. The effect of dimensionless parameters on the pressure drop-volumetric flow rate relationship is analyzed, showing that for a viscoelastic fluid flowing through deformable channels, the volumetric flow rate is higher than the case of a Newtonian fluid under the same pressure. Our results are compared against those published in the specialized literature, showing an excellent agreement.
