    Notes: Abstract Suspensions of fumed silica exhibit a wide range of rheological properties depending on the nature and magnitude of the interparticle forces. In a non-polar fluid, the particles interact through hydrogen bonding and can form a three-dimensional network. The microstructure formation is responsible for the non-linear viscoelastic behavior of fumed silica suspensions, even at very small strain. These non-linear rheological properties have been studied in small amplitude oscillatory experiments as a function of particle size, surface treatment of particles, suspending medium polarity and solids concentration. The non-linear viscoelastic behavior is characterized by a non-sinusoidal waveform of the signal response. For suspensions in a non-polar fluid, both the elastic and the loss moduli are shown to be sensitive to the strain amplitude: the elastic modulus is decreasing with increasing strain whereas the loss moduli is initially increasing with strain. We have chosen to examine the dissipated energy which is clearly related to the breakup of the suspension structure. A comparison of model predictions and the experimental data shows the limitations of these models, recently proposed in the literature to describe the behavior of colloidal suspensions.

    Notes: The rheological properties of three types of fluids that exhibit large normal stresses are examined and compared. These fluids have a constant or nearly constant viscosity and can be used as model viscoelastic fluids, covering a range of viscosity from 0.1 to 124 Pa.s. One lubricant, Emkarox FC 31-45000, is shown to have the characteristics of a second-order fluid. Series difficulties encountered in measuring the rheological properties of the Separan - corn syrup solutions (Boger fluids) are reported. The Emkarox and solutions of polyacrylamide (Pusher 700) in mixtures of glycerine and water are proposed as better model fluids.

    Notes: This second paper of a series continues the examination of the tensile properties of two series of linear low density polyethylene/polypropylene, (LLDPE/PP) blends. The blends were prepared using a twin-screw extruder and cover the whole concentration range, An Instron Universal Tensile Tester was used to measure the tensile properties of the blends between 10 and 70°C, and the temperature and composition dependences of the modulus were examined. A comparison is established between the solid state and melt properties to underline the behavior in the PP rich region. Results of dynamic mechanical experiments and differential scanning calorimetry on the same materials are also given, and the mechanical behavior is discussed in terms of the variation of the system's crystallinity.

    Notes: The morphology of the dispersed phase in immiscible polymer blends plays an important role in the determination of the final physical properties. This paper considers factors that influence the final state of deformation of the dispersed phase, and in particular, the formation of fibers and lamellae. Blends of polyethylene and nylon-6 were extruded by ribbon extrusion at different draw ratios. Prior to single-screw extrusion the materials were blended in a co-rotating twin-screw extruder, and the size of the dispersed phase was studied as a function of the viscosity ratio. As the blends are extruded into ribbons and drawn through the calender rolls, the morphology of the dispersed phase undergoes drastic transformations. The fiber formation is enhanced by increasing the draw ratio. At high draw ratios, long thin fibers are observed. Some biaxial deformation is obtained for the noncompatibilized systems when the extruded materials enter the calender with the maximum closing pressure applied to the rolls. The same effect is observed for the compatibilized systems with lower values of the viscosity ratio. As a general rule, it has been observed that the final dispersed phase deformation is diminished in interfacially compatibilized systems.

    Notes: The influence of shear thinning and viscoelasticity on the power required for the mixing of viscous liquids using six different helical ribbon agitators has been investigated. Four Newtonian and 12 non-Newtonian fluids prepared using several polymers dissolved in varying concentrations in different solvents cover a wide range of rheological properties. By a careful choice of test media, the specific and combined effects of shear thinning and viscoelasticity on the power requirement have been examined. Simple models are proposed to predict the effective shear rate in the tank from the knowledge of the torque or power number. The effective shear rate predictions compared with the effective shear rate estimated using the scheme of Metzner and Otto (1957) show that they slightly depend on the shear thinning properties. Fluid's elasticity increases appreciably the power requirement, and departures from the generalized Newtonian power curve in the laminar regime are observed at smaller Reynolds numbers for viscoelastic fluids. Bottom wall resistance of the mixing vessel makes a negligible contribution to the power consumption.

    Notes: Bubble instabilities observed in film blowing using four different polyolefins are discussed: high-density polyethylene (HDPE), low-density polyethylene (LDPE), linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), and polypropylene (PP). Special attention is given to the effect of the frost line height on the bubble stability, an effect mostly ignored in the literature. A video-camera system was used to record the bubble shape and oscillations. In general, three forms of instabilities and combinations were observed: (1) axisymmetric periodic variations in the bubble diameter; (2) helical motions of the bubble; and (3) variations in the position of the solidification line. The four resins show different stability behaviors. The LDPE has the most stable operating space and the PP is the most unstable one. No correlation was observed between bubble stability and oscillatory shear rheological properties of the resins. Instability is enhanced by increasing take-up ratio, increasing blow-up ratio, and decreasing frost line height. Furthermore, for the LDPE, some operating points were not attainable and multiple steady states were observed. Our results are in a poor agreement with the predictions Cain and Denn's 1988 analysis.

    Notes: A screening design is used to establish the contribution of various parameters to the roughness of cylindrical extrudates. A dimensionless response variable is proposed to characterize the extrudate roughness, and the effects of ten parameters on this roughness response were examined. Two polyethylenes (one high density and one linear low density) were investigated using a 45 mm single screw extruder. The results show that the main parameters affecting the extrudate roughness are, in order of importance, apparent shear stress at the die wall, die diameter, ratio of die length to diameter, and type of polymer. The other six parameters (the use of an additive, recycling, type of entrance adapter, die material, die temperature, melt temperature) were found to have a non-significant contribution to roughness.

    Notes: Primary normal stress difference data of some 32 different polymer solutions have been examined and correlated to the shear stress by a simple power-law model. The normal stress at constant shear stress is shown to increase with the molecular weight of the polymer, but decreases with the polymer concentration. The method proposed by Abdel-Khalik, et al., for predicting the primary normal stress difference from viscosity data for these polymer solutions is inadequate. The FENE-P dumbbell model is used to obtain master curves combining normal stress and viscosity data as a function of a dimensionless shear rate. It is found that this presents several drawbacks. It predicts shear-thinning effects with a power-law slope of -2/3, which is found to be too restrictive. The model fails to predict shear-thinning effects for dimensionless shear rates λEγ lower than approximately 0.5. It also fails to predict satisfactorily the low shear rate value of the dimensionless combination of viscosity and first normal stress coefficient Ψ1/λE(η - ηs). An empirically modified correlation is proposed. The fit for a series of polyacrylamide (Dow Separan AP-30) solutions is very good. In the case of a series of monodisperse polystyrene solutions, the fit is not as good, as the data show a more pronounced effect of polymer concentration at high shear rates.

    Notes: The use of helical ribbon agitators to mix viscous non-Newtonian fluids has been investigated. A generalized model, based on an appropriate definition of effective viscosity, is proposed to predict power consumption. This model is most successful with fluids that do not have a high degree of elasticity.It was found that the efficiency of mixing of pseudoplastic fluids was about half of that of Newtonian fluids in the same mixer, while the efficiency of mixing viscoelastic fluids was still lower and approximately independent of the mixer geometry. Blade width was the primary variable affecting the mixing efficiency on inelastic fluids.

    Notes: Of necessity, the mixing process is sometimes restricted to the laminar regime, although turbulent mixing is generally more desirable. Common examples of laminar mixing are found when the fluid has a very high viscosity, or when one of the mixture components is shear sensitive. It has been pointed out that the helical ribbon agitator (HRA) is admirably suited to the low Reynolds number mixing process. This work derives a model to predict the power consumption of the HRA. The model has been developed with the aid of experimental data and tested extensively using literature data. For a wide range of mixer geometries and sizes, it predicts power consumption with an average deviation of 13%.The concept of relative efficiency of mixers is also described as an aid to comparing different HRA mixer geometries. Finally, the problem of scale-up of different HRA configurations is discussed.
