Rheological phenomena in complex fluids are governed by structures with characteristic sizes in the tens to thousands of nanometer size range. Experimental or theoretical studies of macroscopic rheological behavior of complex fluids and structural changes induced by flow are encouraged.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
"Living polymers" (worm-like and rod-like micelles)
Electro- and magnetorheological fluids
Relationships between colloidal interactions, microstructure and macroscopic flow
This symposium will feature a keynote lecture by
Prof. Daniel Klingenberg, Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Wisconsin
"Flocculation in Flowing Fiber Suspensions"
