SESSION 8: Rheological Fluid Mechanics (RFM) (Including Micro and Nano Scale Phenomena)

The purpose of this Session is to provide a platform for the reporting of the latest results concerning issues related to various aspects of the rheological and flow properties of complex fluids and non-linear materials and in particular advanced materials for the 21st century. Fundamental issues such as flow instabilities, inverse problems in rheology, constitutive formulations for viscoelastic fluids and non-Brownian suspensions, electro-magneto-rheological fluids, thin films, suspensions, slurries, emulsions, oil field fluids, paper making fluids such as black liquor, laminar and turbulent flows of polymeric and other non-Newtonian liquids, are included as well as various transport processes, bubble motions, sprays, extrusion phenomena, fiber spinning, film blowing, industrial coatings, etc.

Micro and nano scale devices have emerged as routine tools in a variety of exciting applications in energy, environment, and medical fields. Electric and magnetic phenomena are increasingly and extensively used for the design and optimization of micro and nano scale devices for a wide variety of mechanical, chemical and biological applications. Examples include biosensors, imaging systems, energy converters and harvesters, fuel cells, pharmaceutical test arrays, diagnostic tools, separations, drug delivery systems, andpoint-of-use test kits.
