Extensional Rheology and Dewetting of Nanosuspensions

The stretching of a liquid bridge is governed by inertia and the internal stresses which are determined by the liquid rheological properties. Some details on the flow, breakup, and flow instabilities can be found in our publications [1],[2][3]. A liquid bridge stretching setup capable of accelerating up to 20G is built specifically for this project. The phenomena are very fast and often fascinating.

A recent review article titled “Forced flows in liquid bridges” is now available for open access in the journal of Current Opinion in Colloid and Interface Science.
