Viscoelastic Coalescence Of Thermotropic Liquid Crystalline Polymers: The Role Of Transient Rheology
(AIP Publishing, 2005-11-01)
The coalescence in air of two polymeric drops into a single drop (also referred to as sintering) was investigated for two thermotropic liquid crystalline polymers. Initial coalescence via elastic contact was ruled out based ...
Forces between Hydrophobic Solids in Concentrated Aqueous Salt Solution
(American Physical Society, 2012-03-05)
Much research has focused on the discovery and description of long-ranged forces between hydrophobic solids immersed in water. Here we show that the force between high contact-angle solids in concentrated salt solution (1 ...
Using transient shear rheology to determine material parameters in fiber suspension theory
(AIP Publishing, 2009-05-01)
Fiber suspension theory model parameters for use in the simulation of fiber orientation in complex flows are, in general, either calculated from theory or fit to experimentally determined fiber orientation generated in ...
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 ...
