Fibre suspension rheology: Effect of concentration, aspect ratio and fibre size
Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.
2006 (English)In: Rheologica Acta, ISSN 0035-4511, E-ISSN 1435-1528, Vol. 45, no 3, 315-320 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Viscosity data for fibre suspensions are produced using cone-and-plate geometry of enhanced dimensions for the reduced influence of fibre-wall interactions. Semi-concentrated suspensions of monodisperse polyamide fibres in silicone oil, with a variety of fibre concentrations (2, 5 and 8%), lengths and diameters, were studied. The suspension viscosity was measured in a range of shear stress in order to study the stress dependence. The study here focuses on the nature of the forces and interactions that contribute to the suspension viscosity. The results show that at sufficiently high stress levels, the suspension viscosity tends to reach a steady-state. At very low stress levels the suspension viscosity increases over time, most likely due to structures formed by adhesive forces. At higher concentrations, the viscosity depends on the absolute size of the fibres, again indicating the presence of non-hydrodynamic interactions.
