Extension of spread-slump formulae for yield stress evaluation

Appl. Rheol.23:6 (2013) 63849 (9 pages) ►

This paper provides a new model to evaluate the yield stress of suspensions, slurries or pastes, based on the release of a finite volume of material onto a horizontal surface. Considering the height (h) and the radius (R) of the sample at the flow stoppage, two asymptotic regimes, where h > R or h < R, lead to different analytical models that allow the determination of yield stress. Experimental observations show typical sample shape at stoppage between slump (h > R) and spread (h < R). Based on these observations, we have developed a new analytical model to evaluate accurately the yield stress of materials in this intermediate regime. The validity of this model was evaluated from data obtained using various Carbopol(c) dispersions. The yield stress measured with the proposed model was compared with the yield stress evaluated from shear flow curves obtained with roughened plate/plate geometry fitted to the Herschel-Bulkley model. Results show the relevance of the proposed model which that can be applied in the range between models used for the two asymptotic regimes.► Cite this publication as follows:

Adhesive properties of fresh mortar joints containing different dosage rates of a water-soluble polymer (cellulose ether based) are investigated using the probe tack test. This test consists of measuring the evolution of the normal force required to separate at a given velocity two plates between which a thin layer of the sample is sandwiched. Three different adhesive components are inferred from the measured stretching force: cohesion, adhesion and adherence. The influence of the polymer dosage rate and the pulling velocity on the evolution of these adhesive properties is investigated. The adhesive components are then related the rheological properties of the mortars which are shown to behave as Herschel-Bulkley shear-thinning fluids.► Cite this publication as follows:
