Properties of electro-rheological fluids

, ,


The paper presented is a continuation of our study of one type of smart materials, namely, electro-rheological suspensions. We use an approach based on the physical model of crystals (the three-dimensional many-particle ordered model). We analyze governing rheological relationships obtained on the basis of this model for arbitrary shear velocities and study he behavior of systems under consideration in the course of temperature variation. We present the comparison of theoretical data obtained with experimental data known.
