Rheology and flow of multiphase geological materials (01/09/17 - 19/12/17)
The BSR Midwinter Meeting 2017 will be held in Bristol. The meeting will combine talks on all topics of interest to BSR members with specific talks aimed at encouraging interactions between Earth Scientists and the wider rheological community.
Geological flows often involve multiphase suspensions. Examples include magmas, which are suspensions of bubbles and/or crystals in a liquid silicate melt, and granular media, consisting of particles suspended in water or air. The flow of these materials often presents a hazard, as in the case of lava flows, pyroclastic density currents, snow avalanches, and underwater turbidity currents. Analysis and modelling of such flows is challenging because the rheology of the materials involved is typically complex. This complexity arises partly because the volume fraction of the suspended phase is often in the intermediate to dense range. Moreover, in the case of magmas, the viscosity of the suspending liquid phase can change dynamically during flow, over many orders of magnitude. Quantifying the rheology of these materials is, therefore, both challenging and important. This meeting will focus on recent advances in our understanding of the rheology of multiphase mixtures with a particular focus on geological materials.

14th International Conference on Electrorheological Fluids and Magnetorheological Suspensions (11/07/14)
Field-responsive fluids and suspensions are a kind of smart materials which present the interesting characteristic that their properties can be reversibly controlled by the application of magnetic or electric fields. Magnetorheological (MR) suspensions, electrorheological (ER) fluids, and ferrofluids are classical examples of such materials.
The development of these materials started in the forties of the XX century and has known a broad expansion in the last decades. Within this context the International Conferences on ER fluids and MR suspensions, which started roughly thirty years ago, have represented a platform of meeting, discussions and exchange of scientific and technological knowledge between researchers in these fields.

International Workshop on Numerical Methods in Non-Newtonian Flows 2010 (13/06/10 - 16/06/10)
The International Workshops on Numerical Methods in Non-Newtonian Flows
have been held roughly biennially, alternating between North America and
Europe since 1979. The next
installment in this series of workshops will be held in Northampton,
Massachusetts USA on June 13-16 2010, co-organized by Mike Graham of U.
Wisconsin-Madison and Jonathan Rothstein of U. Mass-Amherst. The
objective of IWNMNF-2010 is to bring together researchers at the
forefront of computational and experimental non-Newtonian fluid mechanics
and rheology to discuss challenges, recent progress, future directions
and emerging applications.
Topics covered in recent workshops include of course numerical methods
for solution of differential and integral constitutive models from
continuum descriptions of flowing complex fluids as well as also
mathematical analysis of models of flowing complex fluids and the
phenomenological and statistical mechanical framework for describing
An important aspect of the workshops in recent years has been mesoscopic
and multiscale simulation methods. Topics have included
Brownian/Stokesian dynamics approaches for hydrodynamically interacting
polymer molecules in solution, dissipative particle dynamics simulations,
multiscale methods such as Brownian configuration fields and atomistic
approaches to polymer dynamics using MC and NEMD simulations in
Finally, we emphasize that the workshop addresses not just numerical
methods but also the natural phenomena and engineering processes whose
prediction and understanding motivate those methods. Materials of
interest have ranged from polymer solutions and melts to liquid crystals
to suspensions of carbon nanotubes to micellar surfactant solutions to
blood. Phenomena include turbulent drag reduction, flow instabilities and
nonlinear dynamics, flows with complex geometries, multiphase flows,
shear banding, extensional rheometry and many more. Despite the name of
the workshop, presentations of experimental work are essential, as
motivation and validation for the newest generations of methods.
Northampton is 1 1/2 hours west of Boston, MA and 45 minutes north of
Hartford, CT. The Northampton area offers many appealing features, from a
quaint downtown with clubs and restaurants, museums and shops, and
theaters and spas to natural splendor with rivers and mountains and
opportunities for biking and hiking. The area is home to five world-class
universities including the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Amherst
College, Mount Holyoke College, Hampshire College and Smith College. The
workshop venue is the Hotel Northampton, built in 1927 and a member of
Historic Hotels of America.

RHEOLOGY FOCUS FORUM:
"Time-Temperature Superposition in Rheology" - A Review Presented by Dr. Jai A. Pathak, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory
Ever since its discovery and critical study by some of the pioneers of polymer rheology and viscoelasticity (Leaderman, Tobolsky, Ferry, Plazek et al), time-temperature superposition (tTS) has proved to be a very useful tool to rheologists, enabling us to extend the time/frequency range of experimental data by amalgamating data at different temperatures to produce a single master curve that can often cover the glass transition, transition zone, rubbery plateau and terminal/flow regimes of linear viscoelasticity.
In this talk, we will review some of the classical data in the literature (from creep, oscillatory shear and stress relaxation measurements) on homopolymers. We will also point out how tTS fails for some polymers (eg
polystyrene) in the glass transition zone of viscoelasticity. Furthermore, we will discuss the cautionary approach needed to assess the validity of tTS accurately for a system while avoiding common pitfalls and we will also cover the applicability of tTS to, multi-component systems (eg blends, block copolymers, soultions, etc.

FIT 2007: Franco-Israeli Trends in soft matter, biophysics and microfluidics (07/10/07 - 10/10/07)
After Haifa (1992), Saint-Malo (1996) and Tel-Aviv (2002), we are pleased to announce the 4th Franco-Israeli binational conference: "Franco-Israeli Trends in soft matter, biophysics and microfluidics" (FIT 2007), which will be held in Biarritz on the southwest coast of France from the 7th to the 10th of October, 2007.
Soft matter communities in France and Israel are very active and have developed strong ties over the years. The spirit of a recurring binational meeting has therefore been to create an opportunity for scientists from our countries to share their most recent findings with a view to promoting exchanges and collaborations. The success of the past joint conferences has indeed demonstrated the relevance of such an idea.
While Israeli and French researchers may feel especially concerned, this conference is of course open to all.

Euromech Colloquium 492: Shear-banding phenomena in entangled systems (03/09/07 - 05/09/07)
Many entangled systems, including micelle solutions and living polymers, commonly show flow instabilities and flow-induced transitions that result in spatially heterogeneous, shear banded states. The study of such fluids has mushroomed in recent years, and this meeting will provide an opportunity for the European shear-banding community to push the field forward.
Current issues in the study of these fluids may benefit from a wide discussion spanning theory, experiments and simulation. Our goal is to clarify all the different features currently observed in shear-banding systems, improve understanding of the microstructural processes at work and identify the future work needed.
Topics for discussion will include:
This conference will be held at the Bloomsbury campus of University College London, UK
- Diffusive processes close to shear-band interfaces
- Gradients in alignment vs. in concentration
- Fluctuations and instabilities within shear flows
- The influence of wall effects
- How can we improve experiments and constitutive models?
