  Hemorheological alterations in the majority of metabolic diseases are always connected with blood rheology disturbances, such as the increase of blood and plasma viscosity, cell aggregation enhancement, and reduction of the red blood cells (RBCs) deformability. Thus, the visualizations and measurements of blood cells deformability flowing in microfluidic devices (point-of-care devices) can. In order to better appreciate the microrheological methods with optical tweezers explored in this book, informative introductions to the basic concepts of linear rheology, statistical mechanics, and the most popular microrheology techniques are also given.

The microrheology of suspensions by Harry Leonard Goldsmith Download PDF EPUB FB2

The general problem of microrheology is the prediction of the macroscopic rheological properties of a material from a detailed description of the behavior of the elements of which it is composed.

The chapter describes the materials that are suspensions of rigid and deformable spheres and by: Active microrheology of colloidal suspensions: simulation and microstructural theory Ehssan Nazockdast (1) and Je. rey F. Morris (2) (1) Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, New York University; New York, NY USA (2) Levich Institute and Department of Chemical Engineering, CUNY City College of New York; New York, NY USA.

The general problem of microrheology is to predict the macroscopic flow properties of a material from a detailed description of the behavior of its constituent elements. This approach has been used to study suspensions of human red cells in plasma or Ringer's solution flowing steadily in rigid tubes 8–25 times the red cell diameter by Cited by:   The microrheology of a colloidal suspension is measured using laser tweezers.

Suspensions of refractive index-matched fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) particles are seeded with index-mismatched polystyrene or silica probe particles.

Laser trapped probes are then subjected to steady uniform flows, enabling measurements of the suspension microviscosity as a function of FEP Cited by: The general problem of microrheology is to predict the macroscopic flow properties of a material from a detailed description of the behavior of its constituent elements.

We find that the effective viscosity of the suspension is mainly determined by a capillary number. We present active microrheology simulations, where a single droplet is dragged through the suspension. These also show a dynamical phase transition, analogous to the one associated with discontinuous shear thinning in our interpretation.

In fiber suspensions with low optical contrast, the in situ characterization of structural properties with conventional microscopy methods fails. However, overlaying subsequent images of multiple particle tracking (MPT) videos including short trajectories usually discarded in MPT analysis allowed for direct visualization of individual fibers and the network structure of lyophilized collagen I.

The experimental considerations of light scattering and particle tracking techniques are discussed in detail in the Appendix. Active Microrheology Methods. We investigate active particle-tracking microrheology in a colloidal dispersion by Brownian dynamics simulations.

A probe particle is dragged through the dispersion with an externally imposed force in order to access the nonlinear viscoelastic response of the medium.

The probe’s motion is governed by a balance between the external force and the entropic “reactive” force of the dispersion. This work presents a new technique of passive microrheology for the study of the microstructural properties of soft materials such as emulsions or suspensions.

This technology uses Multi Speckle Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy (MS-DWS) set-up in a backscattering configuration with video camera detection.

By monitoring the thermally driven displacements of imbedded polystyrene microspheres via video fluorescence microscopy, we quantified the microstructural and micromechanical heterogeneities of wheat gliadin suspensions.

We found that the degree of heterogeneity of the suspensions, as measured by the width and skewness of the microspheres' mean squared.

V., Hohe Straße 6, Dresden, Germany¨ 2Fachbereich Physik, Universit¨at Konstanz, Konstanz, Germany (Received 26 September ; revised manuscript received 14 January ; published 13. A mode-coupling theory for the motion of a strongly forced probe particle in a dense colloidal suspension is presented.

Starting point is the Smoluchowski equation for N bath and a single probe particle. The probe performs Brownian motion under the influence of a strong constant and uniform external force F ex.

It is immersed in a dense homogeneous bath of (different) particles also. Microrheology provides a neat method to monitor the integrity of biofilms through the use of the film's viscoelasticity and it can thus gauge the efficacy of methods to disrupt them. Such microrheology measurements could be used by pharmaceutical companies as a high throughput method to test antimicrobial drugs.

This book presents a comprehensive overview of microrheology, emphasizing the underlying theory, practical aspects of its implementation, and current applications to rheological studies in academic and industrial laboratories.

This landmark book thoroughly details the basic principles of colloid science and uniquely covers all aspects of the rheology of colloidal suspensions, including difficult and often controversial topics such as yield stress, thixotropy, shape effects and shear thickening, as well as latest developments in microrheology and interfacial rheology.

The single-point active nonlinear microrheology of a colloidal suspension is measured using laser tweezers in the limit that the diameter of the probe particle approaches the diameter of the bath suspension particles. The microviscosity thins as the probe velocity (and corresponding microrheological Péclet number) increases.

Microrheology is an emerging technique that probes the rheological properties and dynamics of soft matter at the microscopic level using observations of the motion of embedded tracer particles. Here, we perform computational nonlinear microrheology experiments, in which a colloidal probe translates through a dilute suspension of Brownian ellipsoids, whose results we compare against analogous computational experiments on the macroscopic shear.

Nano-cellulose fibres in suspension/gel states are known to have complex structures, depending on e.g. concentration and ionic strength. These complex structures pose both opportunity and challenges: creating novel functional structures is challenged by difficult rheology and processability of NFC suspensions.

We present an updated version of JChainsAnalyzer [1], a Java and ImageJ-based software for the analysis of video-microscopy images regarding the aggregation dynamics of super-paramagnetic particles in magneto-rheological fluids [2,3]. This new version of the software has been adapted for a general use in image-based experiments of microprobes in suspension, and, consequently, has been.

The first microrheology experiment was carried out by Jean-Baptiste Perrin in an effort to prove Einstein's theory (PerrinHaw ). Projecting light through a suspension of gamboge spherules, Perrin tracked the motion of individual particles by tracing their movements on paper (the humble beginnings of particle-tracking microscopy!).

Osmotic compressibility also affects the microrheology of colloidal suspensions: Probe-suspension collisions statistically increase the concentration in front of the probe and decrease it behind.

For this compressed region to form, suspension particles must have time to diffuse across the probe (Khair & BradySriram et al. We explore structural and dynamical behavior of concentrated colloidal suspensions made up by C-shape particles using Brownian dynamics computer simulations and theory.

In particular, we focus on the entanglement process between nearby particles for almost closed C-shapes with a small opening angle. Note on filtering: While filtering tracer particle suspensions to be used in Microrheology testing, to ensure the most reproducible data, it is suggested to filter the tracer particle suspension using a suitably sized filter (i.e.

filter size larger than the tracer size). Book, Internet Resource: All Authors / Contributors: spheres / Nikoleta B. Simeonova and Willem K.
