Comparing the transitional behaviour of kaolinite and bentonite suspension flows

Article English OPEN
Baas, JH; Best, JL; Peakall, J;
  • Publisher: Wiley

Past research has demonstrated the dramatic effects that variations in suspended clay can have on the properties of flow by producing a range of transitional flows between turbulent and laminar states, depending on clay concentration and fluid shear. Past studies have b... View more
