ENGN 2920A - Complex Fluids: Particles and Interfaces
Introduces disperse systems (colloidal suspensions, emulsions, surfactant solutions, blood) with special attention to the thermodynamics and mechanics of interfaces. The course will bridge the physico- chemical and mechanical perspectives in the study of these materials. The intended audience is graduate students in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, and Applied Mathematics. Prerequisite: We will sometimes use material from ENGN 2010/2020, such as differential equations, Fourier and Laplace transforms, elementary differential geometry, basic probability, vector calculus. Knowledge of basic solid/fluid mechanics will be helpful.
