In this study, the effects of dispersion and HNT content on the microstructure are investigated; the linear and nonlinear rheological response, and the experimental rheological behavior of the PP/HNT nanocomposites are examined; the transient shear flow properties using the K-BKZ integral constitutive equation is predicted.
[2, 3] studied the dynamic behavior of RBC in shear flow and channel flow and investigated several hemodynamic and rheological properties, using a combination of LBM and IBM.
Warping torsional shear flow flows along the centerline of the U-shaped section, while the circulatory torsional shear flow forms a U-shaped circle.
Deformation of elastic membranes due to an external shear flow or interactions with other such objects is an important problem in basic research as well as in biomedical applications.
Different vertical velocity distribution laws are used to describe stream-wise velocity structure in coastal currents (Soulsby, 1980; Anwar, 1996, 1998; De Serio and Mossa, 2014), in tidal channels (Soulsby and Dyer, 1981), and on the continental shelf (Soulsby, 1983; De Serio and Mossa, 2010).Vertical distribution of suspended sediment concentration (SSC) in rivers, estuaries, and coastal currents have been studied by many researchers through the years (Rouse, 1937; Taylor and Dyer, 1977; Li uet al., 2014).This work derives general formulas to describe the mean velocity and SSC distributions of turbulent shear flow to fit the whole cross section from the bottom boundary to the upper boundary, using a probability density function method.
The assembling of the global stiffness relationship (by element stiffness) is provided by formulating shear flow equilibrium at the nodes incorporating shear flows of the element edges.
With the support of high performance computers, the transport and aggregation of up to 49,152 RBCs, at a hematocrit of 45% in a simple shear flow, have been simulated.
The fluid experiences shear flow in the straight channel, and then an almost constant extension in the contraction zones.
The velocity profile of the SJ becomes narrower due to greater outer shear flow, while CJs have top hat-like profile.
Following the contribution of Mungur and Plumblee [8], various aspects of wave propagation in the circular pipeline containing the shear flow were studied by many researchers, such as Gogate and Munjal [9], Ko [10], Eversman [11], Agarwal and Bull [12], and Pagneux and Froelich [13].
