The apparent yield stress is a fundamental rheological characteristic of a plastic material. In this work, we propose a model that relates the structure of a fractal particle network to its yield stress. The model predicts the yield stress to be a function of particle size, solid-liquid surface free energy, the amount of network material, and the fractal dimension of the network. The predicted yield stress corresponded to the stress at the limit of linearity in fat crystal networks. Moreover, a structural definition for the yield stress is proposed.

    The paper outlines the effects of polymer conditioning on alum sludge properties, such as floc size, density, fractal dimension (DF) and rheological properties. Experimental results demonstrate that polymer conditioning of alum sludge leads to: larger floc size with a plateau reached in higher...

    The neoclassical model for nematic elastomers, which displays soft elasticity, predicts striping in stretched sheets. Thus the experimental observation of striped domains has been suggested as evidence for soft elasticity. Here we show that the postulated director rotations and shears in the...

    To predict the behaviour of grouting material you need to know rheological model and properties. In this context, rheological properties of the microfine cement (Rheocem 900) grouts were investigated. Bleeding, Marsh cone flow meter and Vicat tests are carried out to determine the rheological...

    Rigid-plastic reinforced shells of revolution with a piecewise linear condition of plasticity are considered. It is shown that, in solving problems on their limit equilibrium, the application of linearized yield surfaces or the approximation of derivatives by finite differences restricts the set...
