Description - Rheometry of Pastes, Suspensions, and Granular Materials by Philippe Coussot
A comprehensive examination of rheometry theory and its practical
This publication enables readers to understand and characterize the
flow properties of complex fluids and, with this knowledge, develop
a wide range of industrial and consumer products. The author fills
a gap in the current literature by presenting a comprehensive
description of the rheological behavior of pastes, suspensions, and
granular materials and by offering readers the rheometrical
techniques needed to effectively characterize these
With his extensive experience in both academic and industrial
research, the author is able to take the field to a new level
* General schematic classification of the behavior of
pastes,suspensions, and granular materials
* Systematic review, analysis, and quantification of experimental
problems with complex fluids
* Insight into the flow behavior of complex fluids gained through
the most recent discoveries and research techniques
* Comprehensive rheometrical analysis of data obtained from
research across a broad range of industries
In addition to gaining a thorough understanding of the theory
underlining rheometry, readers discover its many practical
applications. Throughout the publication, specific examples are
provided that illustrate how theory is applied, including examples
involving food, civil engineering, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals,
paper coatings, paint and ink, ceramics, sewage sludges, granular
materials, and natural materials.
In summary, this publication provides a comprehensive review of the
behavior of pastes, suspensions, and granular materials as well as
detailed analysis of rheometrical techniques. Everything needed to
determine the behavior and movement of complex fluids is provided.
It is, therefore, a recommended resource for rheologists,
engineers, and researchers, as well as students who deal with
complex fluids in product formulation, quality and process control,
and process plant design.
