11:30 am - 1:30 pm, Otowi cafeteria side room C, LANL

TALK at 12:00:
Ana Schwendt, MST-7, LANL
"Zeolite-based electrorheological fluids:
Testing, modeling, and instrumental artifacts"


I will present a "fun" project I was involved with in graduate school. We examined the rheological response of zeolite-based electrorheolgical fluids. The experimental results revealed interesting instrumental artifacts that were at first difficult to interpret. However, by coupling the proper constitutive equation with an equation describing rheometer dynamics, we developed a model that accurately describes the response of the fluid and captures the artifacts.

Nonmembers Welcome!  

Sideroom C is reserved from 11:30 to 1:30 for people who like to eat earlier or later, and informal discussion. You are welcome to come for just the talk at noon, and questions are encouraged!
