Bulk Rheology and Dynamics of Complex Fluids

75th A.C.S. Colloid and Surface Science Symposium
Carnegie Mellon University
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
June 10-13, 2001

Symposium Organizers:
Lynn M. Walker
Carnegie Mellon University
Charles F. Zukoski
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaig

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)
Gelling systems
Colloidal dispersions
Macromolecular dispersions
Association colloids
Electro- and magnetorheological fluids
Multicomponent systems
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"
