Description

This book provides a review of the current understanding of the behavior of non-spherical particle suspensions providing experimental results, rheological models and numerical modeling. In recent years, new models have been developed for suspension rheology and as a result applications for nanocomposites have increased.

The authors tackle issues within experimental, model and numerical simulations of the behavior of particle suspensions. Applications of non-spherical particle suspension rheology are widespread and can be found in organic matrix composites, nanocomposites, biocomposites, fiber-filled fresh concrete flow, blood and biologic fluids.

Key Features

  • Understand how to model and predict the final microstructure and properties of particle suspensions
  • Explores nano, micro, meso and macro scales
  • Rheology, thermomechanical and electromagnetic physics are discussed

Readership

Students of materials science, chemical engineering, chemistry, biology, medicine; Scientists in polymer, plastics, pharmaceutical, construction, coatings industries and medicine
