Rheology last lecture 2015

  1. 1. 1 Rheology and Processing. CET3 Lecture 16. This lecture gave an informal review on examples of work carried out within the Department where they linked with different parts of the lecture course. (Presentation has been modified in March 2015 in order to give greater web clarity) The photo was taken whilst on a lecture tour in Malaysia in the 1980s At the beginning of each lecture I would give a short slide show usually on locations I had been to whilst attending conferences throughout the world. I tried to link each journey with some aspect of rheology.
  2. 2. 2 Carbon Black in epoxy 0.1 1 10 100 1000 0.1 1 10 100 Shear Rate (/s) η (Pa.s) 0% 1% 2% 4% Kat Yearsley carried out a PhD in Cambridge and observed “Classic” Cross equation behaviour for carbon black / epoxy resin suspensions. Just one example of the many shear thinning fluids. Graph showing the shear thinning of carbon black suspensions Section 1. Shear thinning The Cross Structure Model
  3. 3. 3 Kat Yearsley 2010 Carbon Black has a complex microstructure that can be seen from the above optical image. The structure model developed in section 1 of the course can describe the rheology of this type of system.
  4. 4. 4 Section 2 Bingham Plastics and perfect plastics Cold Extrusion of Chocolate The photo was taken during a lecture tour of Australia. Cottesloe Beach (Perth) Remarkably; we discovered the cold extrusion of chocolate behaves as a perfect plastic
  5. 5. 5 Shear stress Shear rate Bingham Plastic Perfect Plastic τyYield stress Bingham and Perfect Plastic behaviour are classic mathematical models used in engineering calculations.
  6. 6. 6 Temperature 50 100 150 200 C0 ∆H Cold Extrusion Normal Melt ProcessingPolyethylene Temperature 10 20 30 40 C 0 ∆H Cold Extrusion Normal Melt Processing Chocolate Extrusion processing In the 1980s we developed a low temperature polyethylene ram extrusion process; however DSM (A Dutch Chemicals Company) had patents in this area for polymers. So I selected another material which also had a range of melting points and invented the cold extrusion of chocolate!
  7. 7. 7 This laboratory ram extruder was initially designed for polymers and was the first used to “cold extrude” flexible chocolate.
  8. 8. 8 Here are some early cold extruded chocolate samples.
  9. 9. 9 This graph shows that the cold extrusion pressure is independent of piston speed. This, together with a yield stress means that the material is a perfect plastic.
  10. 10. 10 The composition of chocolate varies depending on its type.
  11. 11. 11 The microstructure of chocolate is complex. It is a suspension of sugar crystals and cocoa solids in a matrix of cocoa butter (CB) and the CB itself contains both solid and liquid fractions at different temperatures.
  12. 12. 12 Crucially for the cold extrusion process, Cocoa Butter (CB) melts over a range of temperatures and at room temperature CB may be 15% liquid and 85% crystalline.
  13. 13. 13 The solid crystalline fraction of CB triglycerides form a regular crystal lattice as shown schematically above.
  14. 14. 14 The non crystalline amorphous fraction of CB are in a random configuration as shown schematically above.
  15. 15. 15 Mechanism 1. The significant amount of work carried out during cold extrusion heats the chocolate and partially melts some CB. Rate of doing work = Rate of heat generation = pressure x area = force = velocity = density = Specific heat = temperature increase P A ρ Cp ∆ T ∆ T = P ρ Cp ∆ T = 100 105 1,200 1,200 = 6.9 0 C TCxA=xA p ∆ ρP x Explanation for Cold Extrusion Model predicts 7 degree centigrade rise in temperature; but experimentally we observe an isothermal extrusion with no temperature rise. So Mechanism 1 must be wrong!
  16. 16. 16 Mechanism 2 . All the work goes into melting a certain crystal fraction of CB. Rate of work done/kg = Work done/kg in melting mass fraction of cocoa butter = φ λ φ λ = latent heat of melting / kg P ρ = φ λ φ = P ρ λ = 107 1,200x150x103 = 5.5% Equate ρρ P = xA xA  P We believe this unexpected mechanism!

  18. 18. 18 These photos show chocolate that had been crystallised within the extrusion barrel resulting in a two component semi solid chocolate.
  19. 19. 19 R X.R Z=0 Z=LB YB YB τx τx VB 1 Inner core material flows faster than the outer material 2 Outer material is under tension and inner is under compression. Chocolate is weak in tension 3 Eventually, the shear force where the two materials meet will exceed the tensile force needed to break off the outer material, forming a new necklace bead. Despite this, the inner material continues to flow steadily. Two materials, two velocities VA H Ovaici, M R Mackley, G H McKinley & S J Crook. Journal of Rheology. 42,1, 125-158 (1998). When the chocolate was extruded, an “Ovaci Necklace” was observed! The mechanism by which the Ovaci Necklace is formed is a bit complex, but explained in the publication.

  37. 37. 37 Processibility of complex fluids can now be numerically modelled for complex flows. A final grand conclusion In the 1970s, when I started to be interested in complex fluids and complex flows the level of understanding and ability to model processes was relatively poor. That has now changed and engineers can now, with confidence use numerical models as design tools for the development of current and next generation processes.
