  journal={Colloid and Polymer Science},
The pair correlation function of charge stabilized colloidal particles under strongly sheared conditions is studied using the analytical intermediate asymptotics method recently developed in Banetta and Zaccone (Phys. Rev. E 99, 052606 ( 2019 ) to solve the steady-state Smoluchowski equation for medium to high values of the Péclet number; the analytical theory works for dilute conditions. A rich physical behaviour is unveiled for the pair correlation function of colloids interacting via the… Expand

Microscopic Theory for the Rheology of Jammed Soft Suspensions.
This constitutive model rooted in the microscopic dynamic qualitatively reproduces a number of salient features of the rheology of jammed soft suspensions, including the presence of yield stresses for the shear component of the stress and for the normal stress difference. Expand


Effect of repulsive interactions on structure and rheology of sheared colloidal dispersions
A previously developed Smoluchowski theory for concentrated hard-sphere suspensions in shear flow is extended to study structure and rheology of colloidal suspensions with soft repulsiveExpand
Effect of Hydrodynamic Interactions on the Lifetime of Colloidal Bonds
We use analytical theory and numerical simulation to study the role of short-range hydrodynamics (lubrication forces) in determining the lifetime of colloidal bonds. Such insight is useful inExpand
Radial distribution function of Lennard-Jones fluids in shear flows from intermediate asymptotics.
This work presents an alternative analytic scheme based on intermediate asymptotics which solves the Smoluchowski diffusion-convection equation including both intermolecular and hydrodynamic interactions and predicts the radial distribution function (rdf) of attractive fluids such as the Lennard-Jones (LJ) fluid under shear.

Effect of hydrodynamic interaction on the coagulation rate of hydrophobic colloids
Abstract The hydrodynamic interaction which occurs when particles are close to each other diminishes the coagulation rate of colloidal particles. We have evaluated this effect, improving a previousExpand
Microstructure of strongly sheared suspensions and its impact on rheology and diffusion
The effects of Brownian motion alone and in combination with an interparticle force of hard-sphere type upon the particle configuration in a strongly sheared suspension are analysed. In the limitExpand
Flow curves of dense colloidal dispersions: schematic model analysis of the shear-dependent viscosity near the colloidal glass transition.
The quantitative analysis of the flow curves suggests that the theoretical approach captures the increase of the low shear viscosity with increasing density, the shear thinning for increasing shear rate, and the yielding of a soft glassy solid. Expand
Viscoelasticity and generalized Stokes-Einstein relations of colloidal dispersions
The linear viscoelastic and diffusional properties of colloidal model dispersions are investigated and possible relations between the (dynamic) shear viscosity and various diffusion coefficients areExpand
Shear-induced breaking of cages in colloidal glasses: Scattering experiments and mode coupling theory.
The hexadecupolar modes dominate at the wavevector of the principal peak of the equilibrium structure factor that is related to the cage-effect in mode coupling theory and are identified as the structural signature of plastic flow of glasses. Expand
Theory of activated-rate processes under shear with application to shear-induced aggregation of colloids.
The theory explains the induction time followed by explosive rise of viscosity observed in charge-stabilized colloidal and protein systems under steady shear, and demonstrates the important role of shear drive in activated-rate processes as they are encountered in soft condensed matter. Expand
Flow-induced nanostructuring of gelled emulsions.
The emulsions investigated are characterized by thinning filaments which eventually break up into a concentrated suspension of micro-sized water-based droplets dispersed in a continuous oil phase, providing evidence of weakly attractive interdroplet interactions. Expand
