141 Complex Fluids: Self-Assembled Materials

Monday, November 14, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
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 surfactant-laden and self-assembling fluids.
