283 Complex Fluids: Polymers and Macromolecules

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Market Street (Parc 55 San Francisco)
Description:
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 fluids and macromolecular solutions.
