Rheology of Complex Fluids Abhijit P. Deshpande, J. Murali Krishnan, P. B. Sunil Kumar This book provides an in-depth treatment of complex fluids. A clear understanding of the flow and rheological behavior of such fluids is crucial while carrying out the processing operations, designing equipments which handle/transport these fluids, and in their end-use applications. This book: •Discusses multicomponent-multiphase systems of which most of complex fluids are examples •Covers a wide variety of application areas from polymers to biological systems. •Introduces active fluids, with internal energy generation, and their rheology •Involves multidisciplinary tools, and brings together contributors from different backgrounds Rheology of Complex Fluids is a must-read for researchers and practicing engineers in the complex fluid industry. Selected portions of the book can be used as supplementary teaching material.
