CHEN 8102: Introduction to Rheology

3 Credits

This course will describe flow behavior of complex fluids from both a macroscopic experimental point of view, in which we focus on characterizing nontrivial responses to stress and strain, and from a microstructural point of view, in which we focus on the microstructural and molecular origins of observed behavior. Primary topics will include: • Linear viscoelasticity (dynamic response to varied types of small deformation) • Non-linear phenomena (non-Newtonian flow and nonlinear elasticity) • Phenomenological constitutive relations • Experimental methods for shear and extensional flow • Microstructural models of colloidal dispersions and polymer liquids
