The rheology of non-dilute dispersions of highly deformable viscoelastic particles in Newtonian fluids

Abstract: We present a model for the rheological behaviour of non-dilute suspensions of initially spherical viscoelastic particles in viscous fluids under uniform Stokes flow conditions. The particles are assumed to be neutrally buoyant Kelvin–Voigt solids undergoing time-dependent finite deformations and exhibiting generalized neo-Hookean behaviour in their purely elastic limit. We investigate the effects of the shape dynamics and constitutive properties of the viscoelastic particles on the macroscopic rheological behaviour of the suspensions.

Constitutive modeling of hyperelastic solids reinforced by spheroidal particles under large deformations

This paper presents a homogenization-based constitutive model for the mechanical behavior of particle-reinforced elastomers with random microstructures subjected to finite deformations. The model is based on a recently developed homogenization method (Avazmohammadi and Ponte Castaneda 2013; J. Elasticity 112, 1828–1850) for two-phase, hyperelastic composites, and is able to directly account for the shape, orientation, and concentration of the particles.

Overall Mechanical Response of Particle-Reinforced Elastomers at Finite Strains

[img_assist|nid=15079|title=Elastomers Reinforced by Spherical Particles Under Different Loading Conditions|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=300|height=264]Abstract An approximate homogenization method is proposed and used to obtain estimates for the effective constitutive behavior and associated microstructure evolution in hyperelastic composites undergoing finite-strain deformations. The method yields a constitutive relation accounting for the evolution of characteristic features of the underlying microstructure in the composites, when subjected to large deformations.
