Concrete Flow Simulations

The graphic below is a single frame from a video simulating the flow of concrete between two walls. In this example, forces are being applied in opposite directions on the two walls, placing the concrete under shear. Various colors are used to represent rock particles of different sizes. The NIST computer models used for these concrete flow simulations may also be applicable for studying the flow of other complex fluids such a polymer blends.
