Abstract:

The effects of resin viscosity on the translational and rotational motions of short fibers in concentrated suspensions are studied from cinematographic observation on model systems flowing through uniform and convergent rectangular channels. The channel thickness is comparable to the fiber length. Resin viscosity is varies from 15 to 25,600 poises at room temperature.
