Suspensions Flow Described by Means of a Micropolar Fluid Theory and Apparent Viscosity of Aggregable Particles Suspension in a Couette Flow
In this paper suspension flow described by means of a micropolar fluid theory is studied. We will assume that the shear stress is weak enough to neglect the influence of a particle free marginal zone. The apparent viscosity of aggregable suspensions is calculated in a Couette flow. The result is compared to human blood viscometric data.
