The interface migration in shear-banded micellar solutions

The interface migration in shear-banded micellar solutions In this work, we study the diffusion of the interface between bands in wormlike micellar solutions that exhibit shear banding flow regimes, namely, systems undergoing coexistence of states of different shear rates along a constant stress plateau. The migration of the interface between bands possessing different birefringence levels is predicted by the BMP (Bautista-Manero-Puig) model in which a structural parameter (the fluidity) presents two states with differing order separated by an interface. The mechanical potential derived from the constitutive equations and a diffusion term for the structure evolution equation predict various time scales of interface migration at the inception of shear flow and under shear-rate changes along the plateau stress. It is shown that the extremes of the plateau (binodals) correspond to the minima in the mechanical potential as a function of fluidity or shear rate. We also predict the dependence of the diffusive length scale on the applied shear rate. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Rheologica Acta Springer Journals

Abstract

In this work, we study the diffusion of the interface between bands in wormlike micellar solutions that exhibit shear banding flow regimes, namely, systems undergoing coexistence of states of different shear rates along a constant stress plateau. The migration of the interface between bands possessing different birefringence levels is predicted by the BMP (Bautista-Manero-Puig) model in which a structural parameter (the fluidity) presents two states with differing order separated by an interface. The mechanical potential derived from the constitutive equations and a diffusion term for the structure evolution equation predict various time scales of interface migration at the inception of shear flow and under shear-rate changes along the plateau stress. It is shown that the extremes of the plateau (binodals) correspond to the minima in the mechanical potential as a function of fluidity or shear rate. We also predict the dependence of the diffusive length scale on the applied shear rate.
