Necessary roughness: Engineering particle surfaces to control how cements and other suspended materials flow

By April Gocha / May 4, 2018

Researchers from ETH Zurich have created a library of silicate particles and precisely studied how the surface roughness of particles affects the viscosity and thickening behavior of suspensions of those particles.

Long-term measurements of ultrastable glass flow cut short with new process

By April Gocha / March 4, 2015

Researchers from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain), University of Rome La Sapienza (Italy), and Politecnico Milano (Italy) have devised a technique to rapidly manufacture “old” glass—a process that would otherwise take millennia—and have generated results that suggest current glass theories might need revision.

Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it … I realize this brief video doesn’t appear to be doing anything for the first few seconds, but once it gets going, it is hypnotic and revealing about how dense suspensions can behave. This video was made…
