Abstract:

The steady-state one-dimensional motion of uniformly dense suspensions is considered. The suspension is considered as a continuous medium, the state of which at each point under steady-state motion is characterized by three variables the concentration of particles, the velocity, and the effective viscosity. The effective viscosity is defined as the proportionality coefficient between the amount of energy E dispersed in a unit volume per unit time and the second invariant deformation velocity vector of the medium. The analysis is based on a maximum principle of the dispersed energy in steady-state motion. Author
