New bounds on the sedimentation velocity for hard, charged and adhesive hard-sphere colloids

Abstract

The sedimentation velocity of colloidal dispersions is known from experiment and theory at dilute concentrations to be quite sensitive to the interparticle potential with attractions/repulsions increasing/decreasing the rate significantly at intermediate volume fractions. Since the differences necessarily disappear at close packing, this implies a… (More)
