  1. 1. Jamming and Soft-Core Rheology

    Author : Daniel Vågberg; Peter Olsson; Teitel Stephen; Vitelli Vincenzo; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; jamming; rheology; soft matter; granular material; SLLOD; critical point; critical scaling;

    Abstract : Many different physical systems, such as granular materials, colloids, foams and emulsions exhibit a jamming transition where the system changes from a liquid-like flowing state to a solid jammed state as the packing fraction increases. These systems are often modeled using soft-core particles with repulsive contact forces. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrophobically Modified Polymers. Rheology and Molecular Associations

    Author : Leif Karlson; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polymer self diffusion; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; rheology; hydrophobically modified polyethylene glycol; hydrophobically modified ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose; cyclodextrin; hydrophobically modified polymer; associative thickener;

    Abstract : Structure- property relationships and thickening mechanism in aqueous solution of two hydrophobically modified polymers (HM-P) with different architecture have been investigated. The two polymers, hydrophobically modified ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose (HM-EHEC) and hydrophobically modified polyethylene glycol (HM-PEG), are commonly used as associative thickeners in the paint industry.

  3. 3. Rheology and Microstructure of Mixed Biopolymer Gels

    Author : Leif Lundin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : carrageenan; microstructure; rheology; xanthan; PCA; polysaccharide mixture; locust bean gum; transmission electron microscopy TEM ; multivariate analysis; viscoelastic measurements; PLS;

    Abstract : The viscoelastic behaviour of biopolymer mixtures showing synergism was investigated under different physicochemical conditions using small deformation oscillatory measurements. In addition, the rheological properties of binary polysaccharide mixtures were related to the microstructure as observed using transmission electron microscopy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Rheology of cement grout  : Ultrasound based in-line measurement technique and grouting design parameters

    Author : Mashuqur Rahman; Stefan Larsson; Ulf Håkansson; Olafur Wallevik; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; grouting; grouting design; cement grout; Bingham number; shear rate; plug flow; thixotropy; yield stress; in-line rheology; UVP PD; Flow-Viz; viscosity bifurcation; aging; off-line rheometry; pump characteristics; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Grouting is performed in order to decrease the permeability and increase the stiffness of the material, especially soil and rock. For tunnelling and underground constructions, permeation grouting is done where cement based materials are pumped inside drilled boreholes under a constant pressure, higher than the ground water pressure.

  5. 5. Rheology and UV-curing of a star-branched polyester

    Author : Hans Claesson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Powder coating; UV-curing; star-polymer; gel point; alipahtic polyester; rheology; dendritic;

    Abstract : The use of powder coatings has increased steadily over thelast few decades. Their popularity is due to a number of majoradvantages they offer when compared to solvent-borne systems.Near zero VOC-content, reduced energy consumption and near 100%utilisation of the material are some of the advantages.
