Material Functions Part 3 Introduction to the Rheology of Complex Fluids Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

To find constitutive equations, experiments are performed on materials using standard flows.
stress responses → materials & type of flow time strain strain rate (or other kinematic parameters) chemical nature of the material Numerous standard flows may be constructed from the two sets of flows, by varying the functions σ(t) and ε(t) (and b) functions of the kinematic parameters that characterize the rheological behavior are material functions Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Material Functions Definitions of material functions consist of three parts: Choice of flow type Details of the σ(t) and ε(t) (and b) that appear in the definition of the flows. Material function definitions – based on the measured stress quantities Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Material Functions To predict them:
Use the kinematics and const. eq. to predict the stress components Calculate the material functions To measure them: Impose the kinematics on material in a flow cell Measure the stress components To choose a constitutive equation to describe a material, we need both to measure the material function and to predict it.

Material Functions for Shear Flow
Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

constant Produced in a rheometer by: Forcing the fluid through a capillary at a constant rate and the steady pressure required to maintain the flow is measured. Using cone-and-plate and parallel-plate geometry, rotate at constant angular velocity while measuring the torque generated by the fluid. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Steady-State Shear For S.S., the stress tensor is constant in time, and the three stress quantities are measured. The three material functions that are defined are: Either + or -, depending on the flow direction and the choice of coordinate system. Viscosity First normal-stress coefficient Second normal stress coefficient Zero-shear viscosity Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Steady-State Shear shear rate strain stress
Either + or -, depending on the flow direction and the choice of coordinate system. shear rate strain stress Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Measured pressures and torques are functions of time. Many types of time-dependent shear flows: Shear-stress growth Shear-stress relaxation/decay Shear creep Step shear strain Small-amplitude oscillatory shear Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Kinematics for shear-stress growth
Before steady-state is reached, there is a start-up portion of the experiment in which the stress grows from its zero at-rest value to the steady-state value. This start-up experiment is one time-dependent shear flow experiment no flow initially Kinematics for shear-stress growth may be positive or negative Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear-Stress Growth The three material functions that are defined are:
Viscosity First normal-stress growth coefficient Second normal-stress growth coefficient Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear-Stress Growth At steady-state these material functions become steady-state functions: Viscosity First normal-stress growth coefficient Second normal-stress growth coefficient Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear-Stress Growth shear rate strain stress
Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Kinematics for shear-stress decay
Relaxation properties of non-Newtonian fluids may be obtained by observing how the steady-state stresses in shear flow relax when the flow is stopped. may be positive or negative Kinematics for shear-stress decay no flow initially Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear-Stress Decay The three material functions are analogous to stress growth and are defined as: Viscosity First normal-stress decay coefficient Second normal-stress decay coefficient Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear-Stress Decay shear rate strain stress Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear-Stress Decay Newtonian fluids relax instantaneously when the flows stops. For many Non-Newtonian fluids relaxation takes a finite amount of time. The time that characterizes a material’s stress relaxation after deformation is called the relaxation time, λ. A dimensionless number that is used to characterize the importance of λ is the Deborah number De material relaxation time flow time scale Deborah number can help predict the response of a system to a particular deformation. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Deborah Number – An unusual interpretation
The prophetess Deborah said: “The mountains flowed before the Lord” (Judges 5:5) The interpretation of Prof. Markus Reiner: Deborah knew two things: 1. Mountains flow as everything flows. 2. But they flowed before the Lord, not before man Reiner’s interpretation: “Man in his short lifetime cannot see them flowing, while the time of observation of God is infinite.” Thus, even some solids “flow” if they are observed long enough. Reiner, M. “The Deborah Number,” Physics Today, pp 62, January, 1964. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep An alternative way of producing steady shear flow is to drive the flow at constant stress. Constant driving pressure in a capillary flow, or by driving the fixtures with a constant-torque motor. The unsteady response to shear flow when a constant stress is imposed is necessarily different from the response when a constant strain rate is imposed. In the constant-stress experiment, the time-dependent deformation of the sample is measured during the transient flow. The unsteady shear experiment where the stress is held constant is called creep. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Prescribed stress function for creep
Shear Creep The material function will prescribe the stress: Prescribed stress function for creep In creep deformation of a sample is measured, that is how the sample changes shape over some time interval as a result of the imposition of the stress. To do that the concept of strain must be defined. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep To measure deformation we use the shear strain.
Strain is a measure of the change of the shape of a fluid particle, that is, how much stretching or contracting a fluid experiences. Shear strain is denoted by γ21(tref, t) Refers to the strain at time t with respect to the shape of the fluid particle at some other time (i.e. tref) may be abbreviated as γ21(t), where tref = 0 For short time intervals: where u1 is the displacement function in the 1-direction Shear Strain (small deformations)

Shear Creep Then the displacement function is:
u1 is just the 1-direction component Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep Physical Interpretation:
is the slope of the side deformed particle Thus, strain is related to the change in shape of a fluid particle in the vicinity of points P1 and P2.

Strain in steady-shear over short interval
Shear Creep For steady shear flow over short time intervals, the particle position vector is: where r is the initial particle position and the velocity is For steady simple shear flow over a short time interval from 0 to t then, we calculate the displacement function and strain: Strain in steady-shear over short interval

Shear Creep The deformation in the creep experiment occurs over a long time interval, and the previous equation is for small deformations is not sufficient for calculating strain in this flow. However, we can break a large strain into a sequence of N smaller strains: where tp = pΔt and Δt = t/N. The steady shear-flow displacement function is given for short time intervals by: Therefore, for each small-strain interval, independent of time Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep The total strain over the entire interval from 0 to t is given by: Same results as for short time intervals and it is valid in steady-shear flows. For creep, an unsteady flow, the relationship between γ21(0,t) and the measured shear rate is a bit more complicated since the shear rate varies with time. The displacement function is the same, however is replaced by the measured time-dependent shear rate function Now we will consider the general case of strain between two times t1 and t2. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep Break the interval into N pieces of duration Δt:
The strain for each interval is: With varies with time. Thus, for unsteady shear flow, a large strain between times t1 and t2 is given by: Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep In the limit Δt goes to zero
This expression for strain is valid in unsteady shear flows such as creep. Shear strain in the creep experiment may be obtained by measuring the instantaneous shear rate as a function of time and integrating it over the time interval. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep In creep because the stress is prescribed rather than measured, the material functions relate the measured sample deformation (strain) to the prescribed stress. The creep compliance is: The creep compliance curve has many features, and several other material functions related to it can be defined. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Shear Creep Steady-state compliance is defined as the difference between the compliance function at a particular time at steady-state and t/η, the steady-flow contribution to the compliance function at that time: Creep recovery – when the driving stress is removed, elastic and viscoelastic materials will spring back in the opposite direction to the initial flow direction, and the amount of strain that is recovered is called the steady-state recoverable shear strain or recoil strain. Sample is constrained such that no recovery takes place in the 2-direction. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Recoverable Creep Compliance
Shear Creep Recoverable Creep Compliance Recoil Function Recoverable Shear Ultimate recoil function Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Nonrecoverable shear strain due to steady shear flow
Shear Creep For small stresses (i.e. linear viscoelastic limit) the strain at all times is just the sum of the strain that is recoverable and the strain that is not recoverable (due to steady viscous flow at infinite time) Nonrecoverable shear strain due to steady shear flow the shear rate attained at s.s. in creep experiment Advantages to creep flow: more rapid approach to steady-state Creep-recovery gives important insight into elastic memory effects Sometimes materials are sensitive to applied stress levels rather than shear-rate levels It is straightforward to determine critical stresses Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Kinematics of step shear strain
One of the interesting properties of polymers and other viscoelastic materials is that they have partial memory (stresses that do not relax immediately but rather decay over time) . The decay is a kind of memory time or relaxation time for the fluid. To investigate relaxation time, one of the most commonly employed experiments is the step-strain experiment in shear flow. Kinematics of step shear strain The limit expresses that the shearing should occur as rapidly as possible. The condition __ relates to the magnitude of the shear strain imposed.

Step Shear Strain As previously discussed:
Taking the time derivative and applying Leibnitz rule: For step-strain experiment: It is called the step-strain experiment: this flow involves a fixed strain applied rapidly to a test sample at time t=0. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Step Shear Strain The prescribed shear-rate function in terms of the strain is: Where the function multiplying the strain is an asymmetric impulse or delta function Thus we can write: Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Heaviside step function
Step Shear Strain The strain can be expressed: Heaviside step function Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Step Shear Strain The response of a non-Newtonian fluid to the imposition of a step strain is a rapid increase in shear and normal stresses followed by a relaxation of these stresses. The material functions are based on the idea of modulus rather than viscosity. Modulus is the ratio of stress to strain and is a concept that is quite useful for elastic materials. Relaxation modulus First normal-stress step shear relaxation modulus Second normal-stress step shear relaxation modulus Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Step Shear Strain The second normal stress … modulus is seldom measured since it is small and requires specialized equipment. For small strain, the moduli are found to be independent of strain, this limit is called the linear viscoelastic regime. In the linear viscoelastic regime G(t,strain) is written as G(t), and often high strain data are reported relative to G(t) through the use of a material function called the damping function: only reported when it is independent of time. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear
One of the most common material functions set. The flow is again shear flow, and the time-dependent shear-rate function used for this flow is periodic (a cosine function). Kinematics for SAOS frequency (rad/s) constant amplitude of the shear rate function Usually done (but not limited to) in parallel plate or cone-and-plate.

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear
From the strain, the wall motion required to produce SAOS can be calculated. Small shear strains can be written as If b(t) is the time-dependent displacement of the upper plate (for example) and h the gap between the plates And strain can be calculated from the strain rate: Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS strain amplitude

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear
Thus the motion of the wall is: Moving the wall of a shear cell in a sinusoidal manner does not guarantee that the shear-flow velocity profile will be produced, but one can show that a linear velocity profile will be produced for sufficiently low frequencies or high viscosities. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear
When a sample is strained at low strain amplitudes, the shear stress that is produced will be a sine wave of the same frequency as the input strain wave. The shear stress usually will not be in phase with the input strain. It can be expressed as: Expanding using trigonometric identities: there is a portion of the stress wave that is in phase with the imposed strain (sen) and a portion of the stress wave that is in phase with the strain rate (cos) Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear - Significance
Newtonian fluids: stress is proportional to shear rate. For elastic materials: shear stress is proportional to the imposed strain, that is to the deformation similar to mechanical springs (which generate stress that is proportional to the change in length) Hooke’s law (shear only) The stress response generated in SAOS has both a Newtonian-like and an elastic part. Thus, SAOS is ideal for probing viscoelastic materials (i.e. materials that show both viscous and elastic properties)

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear
SAOS material functions portion of the stress wave that is in phase with the strain wave divided by the amplitude of the strain wave storage modulus portion of the stress wave that is out of phase with the strain wave divided by the amplitude of the strain wave loss modulus Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear – The Limits
For a Newtonian fluid, the response is completely in phase with the strain rate: For an elastic solid that follows Hooke’s law (a Hookean solid) , the shear stress response is completely in phase with the strain. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear
Several other material functions related to G’ and G” are also used by the rheological community, although they contain no information not already present in the two dynamic moduli already defined. Table 5.1 Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Material Functions for Elongational Flow
Based on the velocity field: Only the stress differences can be measured. Stress measurements are very challenging to make in elongational geometries. In many experiments flow birefringence is used. Flow birefringence is an optical property that is proportional to stress. Measurements of strain are sometimes made by videotaping a marker particle in the flow and analyzing the images using computer software. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Steady Elongation Steady-state elongational flow is produced by choosing the following kinematics: For these flows, constant stress differences are measured. The material functions defined are two elongational viscosities based on the measured normal stress-differences. For both uniaxial and biaxial extension, the elongational viscosity base on t22-t11 is zero for all fluids. uniaxial elongational viscosity biaxial elongational viscosity Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Steady-state elongational flow is difficult to achieve because of the rapid Rate of particle deformation that is required. Very few reliable data are available for this important flow. The strain in elongational flow is defined as: Integrating: Hencky strain Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Elongation Stress Growth
Start-up elongational flow has the same problems as steady elongational flow, but some start-up curves have been reported. The material functions for the startup of steady elongational analogously to shear flow. Material for stress decay could be defined, but steady-state is seldom reached. Thus it is not very useful. Kinematics of startup of steady uniaxial elongation Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Elongation Stress Growth
Material functions Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Elongational Creep If instead of a constant elongational rate, a constant stress is applied to drive the flow, the flow is called elongational creep. May be obtained by hanging a weight in a cylindrical sample. The deformation of the length (expressed as strain) measured quantity. The material function is: Kinematics of elongational creep Elongational creep compliance Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Ultimate recoverable elongational strain
Elongational Creep An experiment that gives some information about relaxation after elongational deformation is the unconstrained or free recoil experiment. The material is able to relax in all three directions. The amount contraction that occurs can be expressed as an amount of recoil strain and is an indication of the amount elasticity in the material: Ultimate recoverable elongational strain L(tinf) is the length of the sample at the time at which the sample is cut free after it has had a chance to relax completely L(0) is the length of the sample at the time at which the sample is cut free of the driving mechanism Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Step Elongational Strain
The kinematics are: Kinematics of step elongational strain short time interval e0 is the magnitude of the elongational strain imposed on the fluid. Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Step Elongational Strain
Uniaxial and biaxial each have one non-zero step elongational modulus, Planar has two moduli. By convention , the strain measure is not the simple elongational strain e0, but rather the difference between two components of a strain tensor called the Finger strain tensor C-1. Uniaxial step elongational relaxation modulus Biaxial step elongational relaxation modulus Planar step elongational relaxation moduli Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Elongation
The kinematics are: Kinematics of SAOE Similar to SAOS, the deformation rate can be calculated as: Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS

Small-Amplitude Oscillatory Elongation
The stress tensor is assumed to be of the form: For small deformations and small deformation rates, the stresses generated in SAOE flow will be oscillatory functions of time with the same frequency as the input deformation wave. The stress will be in general out of phase with respect to both deformation and deformation rate. If we designate d as the phase difference between stress and strain, the 11-component of the stress as: Dr Aldo Acevedo - ERC SOPS
