1 Simulation of complex fluids : a point of view of a physicist Simulation are well working for polymer But for pastes … What are pastes ? Model for yield stress fluids : from microscopy to constitutive equations Yield stress and aging F. Lequeux

2 Pastes Particles in an incompressible solvant No inertia Thermal motion - or not Interactions ( attractive, repulsive)

3 Inertia  solvant viscosity Pa.s a: particle radius m  fluid density 10 3 kg/m 3 Shear rate At the scale of the particles At the scale of the flow  : paste apparent viscosity 10 3 Pa.s Inertia effect are relevant only at very large scale, never at the particles scale

4 Typical Particles interactions Potentiel energy Surface distance Repulsive (requires chemistry) Attractive (most of the situations)

5 Pastes simple classification Interaction strength Attractive Repulsive Non Brownian Brownian Grains in solution, ceramic paste Liquid Concrete Clays suspensions, yoghurt Tooth paste, paints, coating

6 Rheology of pastes : problems Interaction strength Attractive Repulsive Non Brownian Brownian Sand in water, ceramic paste Liquid Concrete Clays suspensions, yoghurt Tooth paste, paints, coating Concentration gradient ! 2 constituents equations No Concentration gradient ! (at least at rest)

7 Ceramic pastes : some problems Avoid concentration gradient in the molded part  work near the maximum packing volume fraction Avoid concentration gradient in the flow  use visco-plastic suspending fluid Risk of complete jamming ( if the solvent flows faster than the particles ) Ceramic Particles in a fluid

8 Rheology of pastes : problems Interaction strength Attractive Repulsive Non Brownian Brownian Liquid Concrete Clays suspensions, yoghurt Tooth paste, paints, coating Concentration gradient ! No Concentration gradient ! Shear dependant structure  Strong Thixotropy Sand in water, ceramic paste

9 Clays suspensions Typical protocol for a reproducible experiment : Mix at time t=0 Measurement Stir at time t 1 Measure at time t 2

10 Rheology of pastes : problems Interaction strength Attractive Repulsive Non Brownian Brownian Liquid Concrete Clays suspensions, yoghurt Tooth paste, paints, coating Concentration gradient ! No Concentration gradient ! Shear dependant structure Granular constitutive equations  2 components model  (f.i. Pouliquen, IUSTI, Marseille) Easiest situation Sand in water, ceramic paste

11 Repulsive paste Dynamics is arrested at rest  yield stress But thermal motions are not negligible  glass behavior ( like glassy polymer)

12 First step toward « microscopics » : plastic events Starting point : Flow occurs via local plastic rearrangements associated with a microscopic yield stress å T1 events in foams (Princen) å STZ (Argon, Spaepen, Falk-Langer, … ) å Simulations of molecular systems (Maloney-Lemaitre) Kabla & Debrégeas, 2002

13 1- Localized plastic events relax the stress… U -U U U 2. … leading to a global stress reorganization  Collective Complex dynamics ? Mechanical Noise ? Second step : from individual events to global rheology t (strain) YY G . (Princen)

(Princen) Ideally, work with domains each with a proper state (stress/strain relation) These domains are mechanically coupled They move (flow field) With eventually some thermal activation And some time scale ( time scale of a plastic rearrangement)  Very complex

15 Ideally, work with domains each with a proper state (stress/strain relation) These domaines are mechanically coupled They move (flow field) With eventually some thermal activation And some time scale ( time scale of a plastic rearrangement)  Very complex These models lead to self organized criticality for shear rate  0, and Temperature =0 (reminiscent to fracture, or earthquake like model) G. Picard, A. Ajdari, F. Lequeux, L. Bocquet, “Slow flows of yield stress fluids: Complex spatiotemporal behavior within a simple elastoplastic model” Phys. Rev E 71, (2005)  =  =0.005  =0.05  =2

16 Repulsive pastes Various type of approximations -field of stress distribution with approximate coupling -P. Sollich, F. Lequeux, P. Hébraud, M.E. Cates : « Rheology of soft glassy materials » Physical Review Letters 78 p 2020 ‑ 2023 (1997) -P. Hébraud, F. Lequeux : " A naive mode-coupling model for the pasty rheology of soft glassy materials » Phys. Rev. Lett. (1998) p C.Derec, A. Ajdari, F. Lequeux “Mechanics near a jamming transition : a minimalist model” Faraday Discuss, (1999) 112 p  Average the state by a scalar f :the rate of plastic events

17 Repulsive paste Poor man’s model : Maxwell fluid ( single relaxation mode) C. Derec, A. Ajdari, F. Lequeux “Rheology and aging, a simple approach”. Eur. Phys. J. E 4, (2001) f is the rate of plastic jump f  0 at rest (yield stress) Slowing down after flow  No other time scale than f Equation for f : linear expansion

18 How to measure f at rest Use a small sollicitation – i.e. in the linear regime Step strain of Creep consequence Evolution at rest

19 Creep experiments- in the linear regime - probe the spontaneous rearrangements : experimental protocol Thermal or mechanical rejuvenation (pre-shear !) Rheological Test (creep /step- strain/…) time Quench Or strain cessation Waiting time Borrega, Cloitre, Monti, Leibler C.R. Physique 2000 Experimentaly And  is about 1 See also : C. Derec, A. Ajdari, G. Ducouret, F. Lequeux : “Aging and rheology of colloidal concentrated suspensions“ Phys. Rev E 67, (2003)

20 Repulsive paste Yield stress  degeneracy Stress is not determined at rest ( f =0). It depends on the shear history Pasty systems are non-ergodic : arrested dynamics  Yield Stress  degenerated state at rest  This leads to technical difficulties in the modelisation

21 Repulsive paste : Beyond mean field approximation for the fludity Local coupling : f is not a local quantity but exhibit a range of propagation ( a few tens of particles). This has been recently observed experimentally. Nature 454, (3 July 2008) Spatial cooperativity in soft glassy flows J. Goyon, A. Colin, G. Ovarlez, A. Ajdari & L. Bocquet U -U U

22 Conclusion Polymer melt flow modelisation is well achieved ( for small shear rate at least) granular matter (dried) is nearly well understood ( at least good constitutive equations, based on physical arguments are able to reproduce experiments) Paste rheology understanding is poor because :  most of them are complex systems – not well characterized  even the simplest fluids (repulsive colloidal suspensions) exhibit complex physics Similar problems can be found for modeling plastic flow of solid polymer
