Effect of the surface roughness and construction material on wall slip in the flow of concentrated suspensions

Gulmus, Sergul Acikalin

Recent studies on polyethylene, elastomers, and thermoplastics have revealed that the construction material and surface roughness are two important factors affecting wall slip. In this study, to determine the true rheological behavior of model concentrated suspensions, a multiple-gap separation method was used in a parallel disk rheometer. The model suspensions studied were poly (methyl methacrylate) particles with an average particle size of 121.2 mu m in hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of disk R-a in the range of 0.49-1.51 mu m and disk construction material on the wall slip and the true viscosity of the model concentrated suspensions. The wall slip velocity and the viscosity were found to be independent of R-a for particle size-to-disk R-a ratios of 80-247. Also, the true viscosity was found not to be affected by the rheometer surface construction material. Glass surfaces resulted in the highest slip velocity, whereas aluminum surfaces resulted in the lowest slip velocity. (c) 2006 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

A surface treatment was applied to carbon black to improve the electrical and microwave properties of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET)-based composites. Three different formamide solutions with 1, 2, and 3 wt % concentrations were prepared to modify the surface chemistry of carbon black. Microwave properties such as the absorption loss, return loss, insertion loss, and dielectric constant were measured in the frequency range of 812 GHz (X-band range). Composites containing formamide-treated carbon black e...
Preparation and Characterization of Low Density Polyethylene/Ethylene Methyl Acrylate Glycidyl Methacrylate/Organoclay Nanocomposites
Coskunses, Fatma Isik; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2011-06-05)
The effects of organoclay type, compatibilizer, and the addition order of components during melt-blending process on the morphology and thermal, mechanical, and flow properties of ternary nanocomposites based on low-density polyethylene (LDPE) were investigated. As a compatibilizer, ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA), as organoclays Cloisites (R) 15A, 25A, and 30B were used. All samples were prepared by a corotating twin screw extruder, followed by injection molding. The highest incre...

Arikan, A; Kaynak, Cevdet; Tincer, T (Wiley, 2002-10-01)
In this study, improvements in mechanical and thermal behavior of short glass fiber (GF) reinforced diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-A (DGEBA) based epoxy with hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) modification have been studied. A silane coupling agent (SCA) with a rubber reactive group was also used to improve the interfacial adhesion between glass fibers and an epoxy matrix. 10, 20, and 30 wt% GF reinforced composite specimens were prepared with and without silane coupling agent treatment of fibers and a...

An analysis is carried out to evaluate the effects of alternate surface boundary conditions on the predictions of our previously developed (Part I) pseudobinary diffusion model for membrane formation by the phase inversion process. Attention is addressed to a comparison of concentration profiles in the quenched film for a constant flux interface (CF) condition and a mass transfer rate (MT) interface condition. A numerical algorithm is developed to handle the MT condition based on an explicit, finite differe...

Thermal and flow properties of perlite-filled high-density polyethylenes (HDPE), studied in the first part of the paper, are discussed. Maximum peak temperatures of endotherms (T-mp) and the corresponding relative peak heights were examined by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The data obtained from a Brabender torque rheometer were evaluated to find the melt viscosities at low shear rate during preparation of perlite-HDPE composites. The filler concentration, types of HDPEs, and the use of gamma-APS...
