Development of a new mixing rheometer for studying rheological behaviour of concentrated energetic suspensions

Abstract

The overall objective is to present a procedure based on a Couette analogy to quantitatively analyse torque/rotor speed data and extract viscosity/shear-rate curves using a non-conventional geometry. Diphasic flows of energetic concentrated suspensions of melt-cast insensitive explosives exhibit particular rheological properties. The characterization of these complex fluids may be a challenging task when conventional rheometers are used. Placing these tense suspensions in a classic cylindrical geometry may lead to a partial destruction of the internal fluid structure. To prevent that, a "RheoXF" a mixer-type rheometer has been developed : it consists of a mixing device with quite a complex geometry rotating in a cylindrical tank.
