The author fills a gap in the current literature by presenting a comprehensive description of the rheological behavior of pastes, suspensions, and granular materials and by offering readers the rheometrical techniques needed to effectively characterize these materials. With his extensive experience in both academic and industrial research, the author is able to take the field to a new level in: In addition to gaining a thorough understanding of the theory underlining rheometry, readers discover its many practical applications.
Throughout the publication, specific examples are provided that illustrate how theory is applied, including examples involving food, civil engineering, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, paper coatings, paint and ink, ceramics, sewage sludges, granular materials, and natural materials.
In summary, this publication provides a comprehensive review of the behavior of pastes, suspensions, and granular materials as well as detailed analysis of rheometrical techniques. Everything needed to determine the behavior and movement of complex fluids is provided. Everything needed todetermine the behavior and movement of complex fluids is provided.
It is, therefore, a recommended resource for rheologists,engineers, and researchers, as well as students who deal withcomplex fluids in product formulation, quality and process control,and process plant design.

Matter in all its States. This book presents a unified view of the physicochemical origin of the mechanical behaviour of gases, simple solids and liquids, suspensions, polymers, emulsions, foams, and granular materials, along with techniques for measuring that behaviour.
Besides molecular materials in all their classical gaseous, solid, or liquid states, we deal daily with a number of other materials made of coarser elements such as polymers, cells, grains, bubbles, and droplets. They take on the familiar appearance of paints, inks, cements, muds, foams, emulsions, toothpastes, gels, etc. These materials exhibit complex structures and sometimes amazing types of mechanical behaviour, often intermediate between those of a simple liquid and a simple solid.
From a practical standpoint, the aim is to analyze their internal evolution aging, restructuring, phase separation, etc. With that aim in mind, it is crucial to understand how these materials deform or flow, depending on the interactions and structures formed by the elements they contain.
This book is intended for students as well as more advanced researchers in mechanics, physics, chemistry, and biology.
