    In this paper, we report on nonuniform distribution of film-forming waterborne colloidal suspensions above the critical concentration fc of the colloidal glass transition during drying. We found that colloidal suspension films dry nonuniformly when the initial rate of evaporationEand/or the...

    When aspirating human red blood cells (RBCs) into 1.3 μm pipettes (Δ P = −2.3 kPa), a transition from blocking the pipette below a critical temperature Tc = 36.3 ± 0.3°C to passing it above the Tc occurred (micropipette passage transition). With a 1.1 μm pipette no passage...

    Polymer-gel materials used as short-term denture soft linings are blended with plasticizers to lower the glass transition temperature (Tg). A lower Tg allows for greater polymer chain mobility, thus producing a more flexible material. The present work evaluated the loss of plasticizers due to...

    In an attempt to extend the range of model jamming transitions, we simulate systems of athermal particles which attract when slightly overlapping. Following from recent work on purely repulsive systems, dynamics are neglected and relaxation performed via a potential energy minimisation...

    We consider a model dense colloidal dispersion at the glass transition, and investigate the connection between equilibrium stress fluctuations, seen in linear shear moduli, and the shear stresses under strong flow conditions far from equilibrium, viz., flow curves for finite shear rates. To this...
