ESR 01: Colloidal interactions between nanoparticles and rheology of dense nanosuspensions

Develop a theoretical model for nanoparticles dynamics taking into account colloidal interactions, perform computer simulations of cluster formation in nanofluids, validate them in experiments and a develop a model for rheology of dense nanosuspensions
Expected Results:
– a theoretical model for dynamics of nanoparticles in bulk and at interfaces;
– a theoretical model for bulk and surface rheology of nanosuspensions;
– experimental results on formation of clusters;
– computer simulations of clustering in nano-fluids and rheology;
– rheology model validation by comparison with the experimental data
