Squeeze Flow Rheology of Zeolite Suspensions
Appl. Rheol. 19:4 (2009) 44322 (8 pages) ►
Aggregation, heterogeneous flows, and complex particle geometries all pose challenges in rheology. This paper uses squeeze flow rheometry techniques to examine a case, where all of these played a role. The applicability of some squeeze theories is tested, and the ability to predict results based on suspension theories is examined. The squeeze flow data is shown to deviate from Stefan's Law [Stefan J, Sitz. Kais. Akad. Wiss. Math. Nat. Wien 69 (1874) 713-735]. The suspension rheology deviated from predicted theory, but by taking into account particle effects such as aggregation the fit to the empirical Maron-Pierce equation [Maron SH and PE Pierce, J. Coll. Sci. 11 (1956) 80-95] could be understood. The conclusions of this study show how using only squeeze flow techniques the synergistic nature of these effects can be better understood.► Cite this publication as follows:

Effect of Electric Fields on the Rheological Properties of the Isotropic Phase of phic/p-Xylene Solutions
Appl. Rheol. 15:3 (2005) 172-176 ►
The effect of high ac electric fields upon a liquid crystalline polymer solution, poly(n-hexyl isocyanate) in p-xylene, is examined. The results show that the solutions exhibit an increase in rheological properties proportional to the strength of the field at concentrations well below those exhibiting liquid crystalline behavior. The effects of frequency and field strength are examined as a means to explain this previously unreported phenomenon.► Cite this publication as follows:
