Sewage sludge presents a dual rheological behaviour with an abrupt change between the two regimes. Using a new technique of reconstruction of the velocity profile, the behaviour can be modelled by a unique equation including liquid and solid components but also a structural parameter. It is also rigorously demonstrated that the only one rheological behaviour in steady state in the liquid regime is a truncated power-law which can be defined only for a shear rate and a shear stress higher than a critical value, γ̇c and τc. Moreover, the critical shear rate and shear stress increase with the solid content and depend on the fractal dimension of flocs which implies that thixotropic effects are all the more important as the sludge is thick and fresh.

The Significance of Disturbance and Thixotropy in Mobility Problems LOUIS J. GOODMAN* ABSTRACT The details of an investigation to evaluate the effects of disturbance on stress-strain relationships of cohesive soils in the problem areas of plate sinkage and shear strength are described in this paper. The problem presented is twofold: 1. The investigation of the effects of complete disturbance or remolding to clay soils and subsequent thixotropic regain characteristics as measured by empirical soil stress-strain parameters. 2. The establishment of a

Introduction Jam is prepared by boiling the fruit pulp with sugar to a reasonably thick consistency, firm enough to hold the tissues in position. It should not contain less than 68.5% total soluble solids (TSS


The determination of flow curves and the apparent viscosity curves at 28°C of creams containing human leukocyte alpha interferon as active principle is presented in this paper. These creams are used for the treatment of papiloma virus and herpes simplex. It is demonstrated that their behaviour corresponds to a thixotropic fluid. The Herschel-Bulkley model parameters are presented and discussed as an indicator of the grade of thixotropy. Apparent viscosity plotted as a function of shear rate and storage time allows defining the time period in which the samples recover their initial structure. Additionally it was concluded that for determining the quality of the product, the acceptance limit of the viscosity should be specified for a given shear rate.
