Food Rheology An overview notes/

2
The Scope of Rheology b The study of the deformation and flow of matter b Concerned with the effect of shear stresses on materials having properties of fluids the effect of shear stresses on materials having properties of fluids The properties of materials lying between two ideal states: The properties of materials lying between two ideal states: the elastic solid the elastic solid the Newtonian liquid the Newtonian liquid

3
Stress and strain b When a material is subject to static forces, the material is deformed b The degree of deformation depends on the material properties the material properties the dimensions of the object the dimensions of the object b In order to standardise the latter we define two quantities, stress and strain

4
Shear b Shear is the result of two forces acting out of line. b It is illustrated in the diagram opposite Shear stress, and shear strain, are defined from Shear stress, and shear strain, are defined from

5
The elastic solid b An elastic solid is one which returns to its original state after being deformed. b The relationship between shear stress and shear strain is a linear one b For shear, the slope of the line is called the shear modulus, G and is defined as

6
The Newtonian Fluid b If a force is applied to a fluid, it shears b As a result a velocity gradient is set up in the fluid which is proportional to the shear stress b This constant of proportionality is called the viscosity

7
The Newtonian fluid (2) b In symbols -dot is the shear rate -dot is the shear rate

8
Non-Newtonian flow b For a Newtonian fluid, viscosity is a constant and a graph of shear stress vs. shear rate is a straight line b Fluids whose viscosity is not constant are called Non-newtonian. There are three main categories Shear thinning Shear thinning Shear thickening Shear thickening Time dependant Time dependant Properties of time independent fluids

9
Non-Newtonian models b Time independent non-Newtonian fluids conform to one of the following models Bingham plastic Bingham plastic Power law Power law Herschel Bulkley Herschel Bulkley

10
Apparent viscosity By rearranging the power law we can define a property called apparent viscosity, app By rearranging the power law we can define a property called apparent viscosity, app

11
Time dependant viscosity b There are two time dependant types of fluid: Thixotropic, where viscosity decreases with time Thixotropic, where viscosity decreases with time Dilatent where viscosity increases with time Dilatent where viscosity increases with time

12
Visco-elasticity b Some solids display liquid-like properties. b Such solids are described as visco-elastic. b Two particular properties characterise visco-elastic solids. These are Creep Creep Stress relaxation Stress relaxation

13
Visco-elasticity (2) b Creep is the continuing extension of a solid when a constant load is applied b Stress relaxation is the reduction in stress needed to maintain constant strain Creep curve

14
Models of visco-elastic behaviour b Visco elastic behaviour can be modelled by spring and dashpot models. b The spring represents the elastic properties b The dashpot represents the viscous properties b The two simplest are the Maxwell and Kelvin elements b These are shown on the next two slides

15
Dashpot and spring models Maxwell element Kelvin or Voigt element This element models stress relaxation This element models creep

16
Dashpot and spring models (2) b Neither the Maxwell nor the Kelvin model on their own fully explain visco- elastic behaviour and more complex models are required b The example on the right quite effectively models the behaviour of cheese.

17
Complex stress & strain b Another method of characterising visco-elastic materials is to apply varying strain b This is usually achieved by applying an oscillatory shear strain to a sample b The equations describing the response to such a strain involve complex numbers, hence the term complex stress and strain

18
Complex stress and strain (2) b The response to an applied oscillatory shear is illustrated below

19
Complex moduli b The rheological properties in oscillatory shear are characterised by the complex moduli. The storage modulus, G The storage modulus, G The loss modulus, G The loss modulus, G These are related by the phase angle, These are related by the phase angle, b These are defined on the right m and m are the maximum values of shear stress and shear strain respectively m and m are the maximum values of shear stress and shear strain respectively

20
Complex moduli b The storage modulus relates to the bulk properties of the solid b The loss modulus relates to the vibrational state of the molecules. b They can be combined to give an overall complex modulus, G*, though this property is not as useful as the separate moduli.
