Complex fluids

Complex fluids are often mixtures of two or more components, which examples include emulsions (liquid in liquid), suspension of solid or soft particles in a liquid, foams, etc. They flow differently from simple liquids. One of the examples of the flow, we investigate in our group by means of theoretical and computational methods, is a shear flow, which is a flow between two sliding planes. Watch a couple of computer simulation movies of such flow below.
