  1. 1. Capillarity and wetting of non-Newtonian droplets

    Author : Yuli Wang; Gustav Amberg; Daniel Bonn; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Dynamic wetting; contact line; diffusive interface; viscoelasticity; non-Newtonian; microfluidics; droplet impact; droplet spreading; Engineering Mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : Capillarity and dynamic wetting of non-Newtonian fluids are important in many natural and industrial processes, examples cover from a daily phenomenon as splashing of a cup of yogurt to advanced technologies such as additive manufacturing. The applicable non-Newtonian fluids are usually viscoelastic compounds of polymers and solvents. READ MORE

  2. 2. Blood Flow variations in Large Arteries due to non-Newtonian rheology

    Author : Stevin van Wyk; Laszlo Fuchs; Staffan Lundström; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Blood; Rheology; Viscosity; non-Newtonian; CFD; Bifurcations; Unsteadiness; Wall Shear Stress; Atherosclerosis;

    Abstract : The blood is a complex fluid that contains, in addition to water, cells, macro-molecules and a large number of smaller molecules. The physical properties of the blood are therefore the result of non-linear interactions of its constituents, which are influenced by the local flow field conditions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Numerical study of particle suspensions in Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids

    Author : Dhiya Alghalibi; Luca Brandt; Metin Muradoglu; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; inertial suspensions; rheology; non-Newtonian fluids; visco-elastic; sedimentation; deformable particle; hyper-elastic.; tröghetsbehäftad suspension; reologi; icke-Newtonska fluider; vis- koelastik; sedimentering; deformerbara partiklar; hyperelastik; Engineering Mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : Solid or deformable particles suspended in a viscous fluid are of scientific and technological interest in a broad range of applications. Pyroclastic flows from volcanoes, sedimentation flows in river bed, food industries, oil-well drilling, as well as blood flow in the human body and the motion of suspended micro-organisms in water (like plankton) are among the possible examples.

  4. 4. Computational studies of flow in Couette Rheometer and particle interaction in non-Newtonian fluids

    Author : Naser Hamedi; Strömningsteknik; []
    Keywords : Non-Newtonian fluids; Correction factor; Fluid properties; Couette Rheometer; Particle interaction; Sedimentation; Computational Fluid dynamics; Plug flow; Herschel Bulkley; Power-law fluid; Immeresed boundary method;

    Abstract : This work aims to study the flow of non-Newtonian fluids and has two main goals. First, the power-law and Herschel Bulkley fluids are studied in a Couette rheometer. Second, the static and dynamic interaction of dual particles in power-law fluid are investigated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heat transfer in falling film evaporation of black liquor - Experiments and theory

    Author : Miriam Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; evaporator; black liquor; falling film; kraft pulp mill; Heat transfer; evaporation; viscosity; correlations; experimental; non-Newtonian;

    Abstract : Pulp and paper industry uses a large part of the total amount of energy in industry in Sweden. The evaporation plant has the major energy demand in the kraft pulp mill, which is the dominant type of chemical pulp mill. Previous studies have shown potential to decrease the live steam demand for the pulp process, e.g. READ MORE
