Background.- Non-Newtonian Fluids: An Introduction.- Fundamentals of Rheology.- Mechanics of Liquid Mixtures.- Rheology.- Oscillatory Shear Rheology for Probing Nonlinear Viscoelasticity of Complex Fluids: Large Amplitude Oscillatory Shear.- PIV Techniques in Experimental Measurement of Two Phase (Gas-Liquid) Systems.- An Introduction to Hydrodynamic Stability.- Applications.- Statics and Dynamics of Dilute Polymer Solutions.- Polymer Rheology.- Active Matter.- Mathematical Modelling of Granular Materials.
The aim of the School on Rheology of Complex fluids is to bring together young researchers and teachers from educational and R&D institutions, and expose them to the basic concepts and research techniques used in the study of rheological behavior of complex fluids. The lectures will be delivered by well-recognized experts. The book contents will be based on the lecture notes of the school.
Discusses how to understand multicomponent-multiphase systems of which most of complex fluids are examples
Covers a wide variety of application areas from polymers, emulsions to biological systems
Introduces active fluids and their rheology, with chemical energy generation
Involves multidisciplinary tools, the book proposes to bring together contributors from different backgrounds
