342 Complex Fluids I: Polymers and Macromolecules

Tuesday, November 10, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Ballroom F (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session of contributed presentations will focus on the hydrodynamics of complex fluids. Topics of interest include the effects of non-Newtonian rheology on flow, flow-induced microstructure, viscoelasticity, and general polymeric and surfactant-laden flows.
