The rheology and non-Newtonian fluid mechanics (RNNFM) of complex
fluids have been the central theme of our research activities. Our group has
been doing researches on the migration of particles suspended in Newtonian and
non-Newtonian fluids under the non-homogeneous flow during the last 15 years.
We have been also working on the very dilute dispersion of nano-particles so
called ‘nanofluid’. This smart fluid can be used for heat transfer
enhancements. Currently we are deeply involved in the solution processing of
suspensions for printed electronics. Specifically we have special interests on contact
line motion, dispensing and inkjet printing of rheologically complex fluids including suspensions.
We have very close relationships with many
of the leading companies of Korea in polymers, cosmetics and electronics. Many
of the alumni of our research group are working for the leading industries and
universities of Korea. If you have any questions or comments on our research
activities or any rheological problems in general, please feel free to contact us.
