This course covers the rheology of fluids in which particles are suspended. Colloidal and non-colloidal particles are considered as well as nanoparticles. The rheology of suspensions is important during their production, processing and application. The emphasis is on understanding the flow behavior of complex systems. Where possible quantitative or semi quantitative relations and scaling laws are presented with which the rheological parameters can be predicted or estimated. This should provide the basis for a rational approach to formulating and measuring dispersions.
