For especially highly concentrated suspensions, slip at the wall is the controlling phenomenon of their rheological behavior. Upon correction for slip at the wall, concentrated suspensions were observed to have non-Newtonian behavior. In this study, to determine the true rheological behavior of model concentrated suspensions, "multiple gap separation method" was applied using a parallel-disk rheometer. The model suspensions studied were polymethyl methacrylate particles having average particle sizes, in the range of 37-231 mu m, in hydroxyl terminated polybutadiene. The effects of particle size and solid particle volume fraction on the wall slip and the true viscosity of model concentrated suspensions were investigated. It is observed that, as the volume fraction of particles increased, the wall slip velocity and the viscosity corrected for slip effects also increased. In addition, for model suspensions in which the solid volume fraction was >= 81% of the maximum packing fraction, non-Newtonian behavior was observed upon wall slip correction. On the other hand, as the particle size increased, the wall slip velocity was observed to increase and the true viscosity was observed to decrease. (c) 2005 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Gulmus, Sergul Acikalin; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2007-03-05)
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 ...

Hacarlioglu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yılmaz, Levent (Wiley, 2003-10-17)
The aim of this study is to determine the effect of preparation parameters on the membrane permeation mechanism and separation performances of dense homogeneous poly(bisphenol A carbonate) (PC) membranes. Blade-casting and drop-casting techniques are used for casting films from solutions with varying concentrations. Chloroform and methylene chloride are used to determine the effect of the properties of the casting solvent. Permeation measurements are done with Ar, N-2, O-2, CH4, CO2, and H, gases. The selec...

The effect of the binding of various polyfunctional groups to polystyrene's (PS's) aromatic ring on the elastic properties of the PS were investigated by an ultrasonic method. Various sets of samples were prepared by chemical modification of pure PSs having different molecular weights with SA, maleic anhydride, and phthalic anhydride. The ultrasonic wave velocities of modified PSs were measured with the pulse-echo method at room temperature by a computer-controlled analyzer and a digital oscilloscope. The v...

Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2006-11-05)
Nylon 6/carbon black conductive composites were prepared using two different methods, masterbatch dilution and melt mixing. Their effect on the size and distribution of carbon black agglomerates in the matrix was studied in terms of electrical and mechanical properties and morphology. The electrical resistivity of composites prepared by both methods decreased with increasing filler composition. The electrical resistivity of the diluted masterbatch composites and the melt mixed composites was reduced from th...

Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
Two different types of surface modifiers, 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane and formamide, were applied to carbon black (CB) particles to lower electrical resistivity of polymer composites prepared by treated CB. Two different matrices, low-density polyethylene and nylon 6, were chosen to compound with surface modified CB. Surface energy of CB was increased by adding amine or amide functional groups during surface treatment of CB. According to electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), chemical modifica...
