Using startup of steady shear flow in a sliding plate rheometer to determine material parameters for the purpose of predicting long fiber orientation
(AIP Publishing, 2012-07-01)
The properties of long glass fiber reinforced parts, such as those manufactured by means of injection molding and compression molding, are highly dependent on the fiber orientation generated during processing. A sliding ...
Correlations between the thermal vibrations of two cantilevers: Validation of deterministic analysis via the fluctuation-dissipation theorem
(AIP Publishing, 2012-02-01)
We validate a theoretical approach for analyzing correlations in the fluctuations of two cantilevers in terms of a deterministic model, using the fluctuation-dissipation theorem [M. R. Paul and M. C. Cross, Phys. Rev. Lett. ...
Obtaining reliable transient rheological data on concentrated short fiber suspensions using a rotational rheometer
(AIP Publishing, 2009-09-01)
The conventional method for obtaining transient rheological data on short glass fiber-filled polymeric fluids is to use the parallel disk (PP) geometry in a rotational rheometer. Using the PP geometry large transient stress ...
Lubrication forces in air and accommodation coefficient measured by a thermal damping method using an atomic force microscope
(American Physical Society, 2010-05-01)
By analysis of the thermally driven oscillation of an atomic force microscope (AFM) cantilever, we have measured both the damping and static forces acting on a sphere near a flat plate immersed in gas. By varying the ...
