    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Title Connecting the Drops : Observing Collective Flow Behavior in Emulsions
Author(s) Dijksman, Joshua A.
Source Frontiers in Physics 7 (2019). - ISSN 2296-424X

Keyword(s) anisotropy - emulsion - friction - non-local - surfactants - yield stress fluids

Thoroughly mixing immiscible fluids creates droplets of one phase dispersed in a continuum of the other phase. In such emulsions, the individual droplets have rather mundane mechanical behavior. However, densely confining these suspended droplets generates a packing of particles with a spectacular diversity of mechanical behavior whose origins we are only beginning to understand. This mini review serves to survey a non-exhaustive range of experimental dense slow flow emulsion work. To embed these works in the context of the flow behavior of other structured fluids, we also discuss briefly the related non-local flow modeling attempts as one of the approaches that has been used successfully in describing emulsion flow properties and other materials.
