An experimental study on the flow behavior of micellar solutions

An experimental study on the flow behavior of micellar solutions At higher concentration levels, the inner structure of micellar solutions cannot be detected directly by optical means. Nevertheless, the flow behavior of the micellar solutions reflects their micellar structures. Hence, in this study the material behavior of micellar surfactant solutions was investigated by rheometrical means in steady and oscillatory shear flows. The flow behavior of the solutions was found to be strongly dependent on the concentration of the surfactants. At very low concentrations, the surfactant solution shows Newtonian behavior. With increasing concentration, a transition to shear thinning behavior and increasing viscoelasticity was found. The complex material structure is modeled according to the flow behavior by discrete and continuous relaxation time spectra, depending on the concentration. Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
