Summary of "Impact of mechanical history on sludge rheological properties: Role of the organic content."

The rheological behavior is known to be of great interest in sludge treatment, but the material complexity induces strong measurement difficulties. The literature highlights two characteristics deeply impacting sludge rheological properties and their characterization: Thixotropic behavior and organic matter (Seyssiecq et al., 2003; Eshtiaghi et al., 2013), both being related to each other. Indeed, by looking at how thixotropy affects elastic modulus and yield stress with different mechanical histories at different organic matter ratios, it turns out that the higher the organic matter, the higher the thixotropic behavior.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The conformation, properties, reaction processes, and the properties of the reactions of carbon compounds.

The properties and processes of materials that affect their behavior under force.

A historical and cultural entity dispersed across the wide geographical area of Europe, as opposed to the East, Asia, and Africa. The term was used by scholars through the late medieval period. Thereafter, with the impact of colonialism and the transmission of cultures, Western World was sometimes expanded to include the Americas. (Dr. James H. Cassedy, NLM History of Medicine Division)

The properties, processes, and behavior of biological systems under the action of mechanical forces.

The study of literature in its widest sense, including grammar, etymology, criticism, literary history, language history, linguistic history, systems of writing, and anything else that is relevant to literature or language viewed as literature. Philology as a discipline has both philosophical and scientific overtones.
