Online Course Details:
Non-Newtonian fluids are encountered in various engineering applications. This course introduces concepts required to analyze the behaviour of such fluids. Since micro-structural features of materials are responsible for non-Newtonian nature, this course describes the most commonly used classes of material systems and their rheological behaviour.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: This course will be applicable for following disciplines:
Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mechanics, Civil Engineering, Biotechnology.
PRE-REQUISITES: Fluid Mechanics or solid mechanics course at the undergraduate level
INDUSTRY SUPPORT: Food products, Personal care products, Plastic processing industries, Paints and emulsions, Adhesives, Inks, Biomaterials, crude oil recovery and transport.
