Spatial-Temporal Correlations at the Onset of Flow in Concentrated Suspensions
Nicos Martys, Didier Lootens, William L. George, Steven G. Satterfield, Pascal Hebraud
Spatial-temporal correlations in the startup-up flow of colloidal suspensions composed of attractive spherical particles under static and shear conditions are studied by computer simulation. The evolution of particle organization with time is followed as equilibrium is approached. The time dependence of the radial distribution and organization of nearest neighbors is tracked as equilibrium is approached and then as constant shear rate is applied.
