# How do you make Boger fluid?

## How do you make Boger fluid?

Boger fluids are made primarily by adding a small amount of polymer to a Newtonian fluid with a high viscosity, a typical solution being polyacrylamide mixed with corn syrup.

## Can a fluid be elastic?

Fluids offer no permanent resistance to shearing, and they have elastic properties only under direct compression: in contrast to solids which have all three elastic moduli, fluids possess a bulk modulus only.

What is viscoelastic fluid?

Viscoelastic fluids are a type of non-Newtonian fluid formed by a viscous component and an elastic one. For short, viscoelastic fluids are the blend of a solvent and some polymer. Examples of these are paints, DNA suspensions, some biological fluids and others from the chemical industry.

### What is fluid elasticity?

Elasticity is a material property characterizing the compressibility of a fluid – how easy a unit of the fluid volume can be changed when changing the pressure working upon it.

### What are 5 characteristics of fluids?

Fluids have common properties that they share, such as compressibility, density, pressure, buoyancy and viscosity.

What is the difference between elasticity and viscoelasticity?

The difference between elastic materials and viscoelastic materials is that viscoelastic materials have a viscosity factor and the elastic ones don’t. Because viscoelastic materials have the viscosity factor, they have a strain rate dependent on time.

## What is rheopectic fluid?

Rheopectic fluids, such as some lubricants, thicken or solidify when shaken. The opposite and much more common type of behaviour, in which fluids become less viscous the longer they undergo shear, is called thixotropy. Examples of rheopectic fluids include gypsum pastes and printer inks.

## What is the difference between viscosity and elasticity?

Whereas elasticity is usually the result of bond stretching along crystallographic planes in an ordered solid, viscosity is the result of the diffusion of atoms or molecules inside an amorphous material.

What is the limit of elasticity?

elastic limit, maximum stress or force per unit area within a solid material that can arise before the onset of permanent deformation. When stresses up to the elastic limit are removed, the material resumes its original size and shape. Stresses beyond the elastic limit cause a material to yield or flow.

### What is viscoelasticity material?

In materials science and continuum mechanics, viscoelasticity is the property of materials that exhibit both viscous and elastic characteristics when undergoing deformation. Viscous materials, like water, resist shear flow and strain linearly with time when a stress is applied.

### What is a viscoelastic fluid?

What is an example of rheopectic fluid?

Examples include printer inks, gypsum pastes and the body’s synovial fluids. A frequently quoted example of a rheopectic fluid is a mixture of corn starch (cornflower powder) and water. When at rest, the mixture can be stirred gently (so is relatively fluid) but will solidify instantly when hit with a fist or a hammer.

## What is the difference between thixotropic and rheopectic fluids?

Some liquids behave differently with stress (application of force) over time. Rheopectic liquids increase in viscosity as stress over time increases. Thixotropic liquids decrease in viscosity as stress over time increases.
