About SERC School and Symposium


We

encounter

various

materials

in

our

daily

life

which

may

consist

of

long

molecules

like

polymers,

proteins,

surfactants

or

liquid

crystals
.

The

long

asymmetric

molecules

assemble

in

a

medium

to

produce

a

bigger

size

particle,

which

are

dispersed

in

the

medium
.

Depending

on

the

medium

and

concentration

of

the

component

molecules,

the

system

can

produce

several

structures

and

nomenclature

of

products
.

Physical

and

flow

properties

of

solution

of

the

long

molecules

are

understood

reasonably

well

in

the

absence

of

assembled

structures,

although

physical

and

flow

properties

of

solutions

differ

from

considerably

from

that

of

small

molecules
.

However,

the

flow

properties

of

the

system

with

the

assembled

structures

in

the

medium

are

poorly

understood
.

This

is

due

to

the

lack

of

knowledge

in

the

deformation

behavior

of

various

structures

and

their

assemblies

under

stress,

coupled

with

the

various

interactions

present

within

the

system
.


Through

the

proposed

SERC

School

on

complex

fluids,

we

aim

to

bring

together

young

researchers

and

teachers

from

educational

and

R&D

institutions

and

expose

them

to

the

basic

concepts

and

research

techniques

used

in

the

study

of

flow

behavior

of

complex

fluids
.

The

lectures

on

various

aspects

of

complex

fluids

will

be

delivered

by

experts

from

various

academic

and

research

institutions

of

the

country
.

The

school

will

be

useful

to

the

participants

in

their

teaching

and

research

skills

so

that

they

can

undertake

research

in

challenging

fundamental

as

well

as

industrial

problems

involving

complex

fluids
.

Symposium

will

immediately

follow

the

proposed

DST
-
sponsored

SERC

school

on

complex

fluids

intended

for

industrial

research/technological

groups

who

face

various

process/development

problems

and

academician/researcher

who

have

been

working

on

various

rheological

problems

topics

of

interfacial

phenomena,

including

static

and

dynamics

of

surfactant,

polymer,

protein

at

interfaces
.

Understanding

of

these

effects

are

key

to

improve

the

various

technological

processes

involved

in

oil,

paints,

pharmaceuticals,

water

treatment

and

minerals

industries

etc
.



History of the SERC School and Symposium

Since

the

year

2002
,

the

SERC

schools

on

Rheology

of

Complex

Fluids

were

started

with

a

financial

support

from

the

DST

New

Delhi
.

IISc

Bangalore

organized

the

first

SERC

School

on

complex

fluids

in

2002
,

followed

by

NCL

Pune

in

2004
,

IIT

Kanpur

in

2006
,

IIT

Bombay

in

2008
,

IIT

Madras

in

2010

and

the

last

school

was

organized

by

IIT

Guwahati

in

2012
.

The

series

of

these

SERC

schools

on

complex

fluids

have

been

very

successful

with

eminent

faculty

members

and

researchers

from

most

of

the

IITs

and

IISc
,

NCL

Pune

delivering

the

lectures

on

broad

range

of

topics

from

basics

of

fluid

mechanics

to

rheology

of

polymers,

suspensions,

granular

flows
;

advanced

simulations

methods
;

etc
.
