suspension rheology

Mud, slurry, coffee, paints, cements, batteries and many other everyday materials have particles suspended in a liquid. We need to understand the flow behaviour to handle, and process such materials for traditional and innovative applications. Our research seeks to understand the common features of the flow behaviour of different materials using simple particle based simulations. In particular, we focus on dense suspensions where the particles occupy more than 50 % by volume of the solution.

Research Themes: 

  • Granular Mechanics and Industrial Infrastructure
DEM simulation of shear flow of particle suspension

My research involves the modelling and simulation of complex fluids, for example emulsions, suspensions of deformable particles or red blood cells in microfluidic devices.
