Fluids at Brown, Division of Applied Mathematics Fluids and Thermal Sciences, School of Engineering Joint Seminar Series

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Barus and Holley, Room 190

Hydrodynamic interactions in non Newtonian liquids Roberto Zenit Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico ABSTRACT: The understanding of hydrodynamic forces around particles, drops, or bubbles moving in Newtonian liquids is modestly mature. It is possible to obtain predictions of the attractive–repulsive interaction for moving ensembles of dispersed particulate objects. There is a certain intuition of what the effects of viscous, inertial, and surface tension forces should be. When the liquid is non-Newtonian, this intuition is gone.

Locomotion in Generalized Newtonian Fluids: Living Organisms & Active Colloids Dr. David Gagnon Georgetown University ABSTRACT: Biofilm formation, mammalian reproduction, and infection typically occur in environments where surrounding fluids comprise suspensions of polymers. These polymeric suspensions possess non-Newtonian rheological properties, such as rate-dependent viscosity and viscoelasticity, and present numerous experimental and modeling challenges.
