CSC Scientific, a manufacturer and distributer of quality assurance testing equipment, announces the addition of a rotational viscometer to their product line in a partnership with Fungilab, one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of quality control equipment for viscosity measurement. The Rotational Viscometer comes in four models and is capable of measuring a wide viscosity range of Newtonian and Non-Newtonian fluids. Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) October 11, 2013 CSC Scientific Company,...

Material Properties Of Containers Affect The Viscosity Of Water At The Nanoscale
2013-09-19 14:25:06

Georgia Institute of Technology Water pours into a cup at about the same rate regardless of whether the water bottle is made of glass or plastic. But at nanometer-size scales for water and potentially other fluids, whether the container is made of glass or plastic does make a significant difference. A new study shows that in nanoscopic channels, the effective viscosity of water in channels made of glass can be twice as high as water in plastic channels. Nanoscopic glass channels can...

Physics Lesson: Try Clapping Your Wet Hands
2013-08-15 12:30:20

Virginia Tech Sunny Jung continues to redefine the views on the laws of physics, and in doing so, impacts the research on topics as varied as drug delivery methods to fuel efficiency. In a paper appearing this month in Physical Review E, Young and five colleagues reported on the dynamics of squeezing fluids using a simple experiment of clapping with wet hands. As an engineer, Jung described "this outburst of fluid motion" as the unusual physical phenomena. Earlier in his career,...

Bacteria Swim With Help From High-angle Helix
2013-08-13 15:33:24

Brown University It’s counterintuitive but true: Some microorganisms that use flagella for locomotion are able to swim faster in gel-like fluids such as mucus. Research engineers at Brown University have figured out why. It's the angle of the coil that matters. Findings are reported in Physical Review Letters. A high-angle helix helps microorganisms like sperm and bacteria swim through mucus and other viscoelastic fluids, according to a new study by researchers from Brown University...

Seven Decade-Long Experiment Catches Tar Dripping For First Time

[Watch Video: Pitch Drop Experiment Comes To An End] Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Set up by Ireland's Trinity College in 1944 and Australia's University of Queensland in 1927 -- a very specific event had never been witnessed before. Even an attempt to catch it with a webcam in 2000 failed because of an equipment malfunction. It represents the world's longest running experiment. If you're thinking "get to the point!" then you might know the frustration of...

Missing Link Between Mechanical And Structural Properties Of Glass Established By Researchers
2013-04-10 12:47:08

Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron The craft of glassmaking extends way back in time. It was over five-thousand years ago when mankind learned how to make glass. Even prior to this discovery, humans had been using naturally occurring glass for tool making. Despite this long and rich history and widespread use of glass, surprisingly little is known about the interplay between the mechanical properties of glasses and their inner structures. For the first time, researchers from Amsterdam...

The results are significant because they can help to improve our understanding of medical conditions, such as thrombosis, aneurysms and arteriosclerosis. The research team is publishing its results in Physical Review Letters and the American Physical Society has highlighted the work on its Physics website, placing it on the Focus List of important physics news. Blood flows differently than water. Anyone who has ever cut themselves knows that blood flows viscously and rather erratically....

In an advance toward stain-proof, spill-proof clothing, protective garments and other products that shrug off virtually every liquid – from blood and ketchup to concentrated acids – scientists are reporting development of new "superomniphobic" surfaces. Their report on surfaces that display extreme repellency to two families of liquids – Newtonian and non-Newtonian liquids – appears in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Anish Tuteja and colleagues point...
