  1. 1. Form pressure generated by self-compacting concrete : influence of thixotropy and structural behaviour at rest

    Author : Peter Billberg; Johan Silfwerbrand; Kamal Khayat; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; self-compacting concrete; thixotropy; structural build-up; form pressure; rheometer; viscometer; instrumented pressure tube; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Self-compacting concrete (SCC) offers rational and fast casting process since it merely has to be poured, or pumped, into the formwork without any compaction work needed. But this can be at the cost of high form pressure. However, reported results show that SCC can act thixotropically, i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Muscle Thixotropy : Implications for Human Motor Control

    Author : Hans Axelson; Karl-Erik Hagbarth; Mikael Elam; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Motor control; Skeletal muscle; Thixotropy; History-dependent; EMG; Voluntary contractions; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi;

    Abstract : Human skeletal muscles possess thixotropic, i.e. history-dependent mechanical properties. This means that the degree of passive muscle stiffness and resting tension is dependent on the immediately preceding history of contractions and length changes. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the measurement and application of cement grout rheological properties

    Author : John Shamu; Stefan Larsson; Ulf Håkansson; Johan Funehag; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Cement-based grouts; grouting; yield stress fluid YSF ; thixotropy; critical shear rate; radial flow; wall slip; Bingham model; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : The rheological properties of cement-based grouts play a key role in determining the final spread in grouted rock formations. Rheologically, cement grouts are known to be complex thixotropic fluids, but their steady flow behavior is often described by fitting the simple Bingham constitutive law to flow curve data.

  4. 4. Complexation between hydrophobically modified polymers and amylose. Gelation and competition by surfactants

    Author : Monica Egermayer; Kemiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; rheology; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; inclusion complex; amylose; surfactant; ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose; hydrophobically modified polymer; hydroxyethyl cellulose;

    Abstract : Aqueous mixtures of hydrophobically modified polymers (HMP) with amylose have been investigated by rheology and 1H NMR. Amylose can cross-link HMP chains by forming single-helical inclusion complexes with the hydrophobic side chains of the HMP, leading to thermoreversible, elastic, and thixotropic gels at ambient temperatures.

  5. 5. Chemical modification of cellulose-new possibilities of some classical routes

    Author : Merima Hasani; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Cellulose esters; Cellulose characterization; Cellulose ethers; Cationization; Cellulose nanocrystals; Crosslinking of cellulose;

    Abstract : Owning to its unique structure, along with the inexhaustible renewability, cellulose has been a subject of scientific and commercial interest for over 150 years. However, given attractive structural properties, such as stiffness, hydrophilicity, stereoregularity, potential for chemical modifications and ability to form superstructures, utilization of this biopolymer is far below its potential.
