Behaviour of granular suspensions…

Quantifying the impact of vibrations on the rheological properties of granular suspensions is advantageous for many applications, whether environmental or industrial. For example, understanding the effects of seismic shaking on soil liquefaction and measuring the vibrations to be applied to concrete to ensure it is cast effectively, are problems still to be resolved. To gain a better understanding of these phenomena, we measured the impact of controlled vibrations on the rheology of a model granular medium consisting of glass beads (~ 100μm) saturated with liquid (volume fraction in the order of 60%)…

Flow properties of food powders

Jennifer BURGAIN, Jeremy PETIT, Claire GAIANI and Joël SCHER contributed to the dossier on innovations in the field of food powders in the November-December 2017 issue of the journal “Industries Alimentaires et Agricoles” (Food and Agricultural Industries). Two articles provided a general summary of LIBio’s expertise in the surface characterisation of milk powders by atomic force microscopy and in the flow properties of food powders. The second is directly related to the subject matter of the PowderReg project.
