There is a great need to understand the fundamental rheological properties of particles as they pertain to industry and the environment.
Knowledge of powder rheology can permit scale-up of industrial processes and control of soil erosion. Empirical tests that have developed over the year are inadequate to define the basic constitutive relationships of stress, strain, and rate of powders.
Shear rheometry experiments have been developed to accurately measure the material functions of particles in their linear viscoelastic region. This data is used to calculate the cohesive strength of particles in the absence of external loads.
In addition, well-characterised particles have been determined in terms of their size, shape and size distribution. The effects of these variables on the cohesive strength of particles are reported.
This webinar takes place on 4 December from 10:30-11:30 (GMT-5:00). Speaker Chuck Rhon invites anyone interested in measuring the cohesive strength of powders to understand how particle properties such as particle shape and size influence this parameter.
