Official Description

Mechanics of complex fluids exhibiting non-Newtonian behavior including shear-thinning, viscoelasticity, extensional thickening, and thixotropy. Key ideas include rheological property measurement, tensorial constitutive models, flow calculations, and basic structure-property relations. Concepts apply to a diverse range of materials such as polymer solutions and melts, colloidal suspensions, gels, emulsions, foams, pastes, biomaterials, and other soft materials. This interdisciplinary material requires previous intermediate level coursework in at least one of the core areas of fluid mechanics, or solid mechanics, or polymer physics, or colloid physics. Course Information: 4 graduate hours. No professional credit. Prerequisite: TAM 435 OR TAM 451 OR MSE 450 OR MSE 480.
