Rheological Properties of a Natural Estuarine Mud

Appl. Rheol. 13:3 (2003) 142-149

In this paper, the linear and non-linear rheological properties of estuarine cohesive sediments were investigated. The density of the sediments has been determined by pycnometry. Creep and oscillatory shear measurements have been performed in order to determine i) the transitions in mechanical response to creep and oscillatory shear and ii) the material properties of these natural fluids as a function of their density. For all samples tested, four different rheological transitions have been determined and all material properties have been shown to be satisfactorily fitted by exponential functions of the density.

Plastic Fluid Flow Parameters Identification Using a Simple Squeezing Test

Appl. Rheol. 13:3 (2003) 132-141

In this paper after a presentation of the compression test and its classical references in the rheological literature a behaviour parameter identification method is introduced using simple compression tests on concentrated geo-suspensions with a plastic fluid behaviour. The obtained theoretical test response is validated for several materials (natural soils, Kaolin clay .). It is also compared with previous solutions obtained by other authors to show that most existing solutions miss one or more terms. Elements are also given on two types of test response perturbations: the induced heterogeneity in the case of slow tests (consolidation phenomena) and the fragmentation of the outer part of sample (granular paste breakings). Finally, compression test results for a nano silica paste are presented as a example and treated as an application of the test exploitation method.

The Influence of Thickener Addition on Filter Cake Formation During Dewatering of Mineral Suspensions

Appl. Rheol. 13:3 (2003) 125-131

A novel method to continuously measure the rate of build-up of an immobilised layer (apparent filter cake) was demonstrated for three mineral suspensions containing carboxymethyl cellulose and polymer latex. These suspensions were designed to be similar to those normally used as coating colours within the paper industry. The instrumentation was based on a rheometer equipped with units for controlling (and measuring) the normal forces acting on the rotating upper plate and precise measurements of the gap height in parallel.plate geometry. The bottom plate in the measurement cell was perforated and connected to vacuum, giving the driving pressure for flow through the filter. The technique should so far be taken as a qualitative, but is an attractive method for measuring filtration in thin films under controlled shear rate. The technique enables the apparent filter cake height to be calculated at any time during dewatering of the coating colours.

Dynamic Master Curves of Polymer Modified Asphalt from Three Different Geometries

Appl. Rheol. 13:3 (2003) 118-124

Polymer modified asphalt is an highly temperature sensitive material. To obtain the master curves of dynamic material functions, for this material, it is necessary to perform the testing over the temperature interval from - 30.C to at least 90.C. Since in this temperature range the polymer modified asphalt undergoes the transition from a glass-like to a Newtonian-like material, the benefit of using three testing geometries is studied here. The geometries used were: torsion bar (for the low temperatures), plate-plate (for the mid range temperatures) and bob and cup (for the high temperatures). The advantage of the combination of these three geometries is discussed. Stress and strain controlled rheometers were used to conduct all dynamic experiments. Master curves obtained by these geometries cover up to 20 decades of the reduced frequency.
