Abstract:The primary interest of this work is to determine the effect of continuous shear, variable shear rate, and shear history on concentrated hydrous ferric floc rheology. The floc suspensions are strongly shear degrading with the behaviour being adequately described by a power law model. This is supported by images of the floc particles, which indicate a breakdown in floc structure, with the release of water and formation of smaller particles, after the application of shear. A shear rate sweep of the sample produc…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
