The influence of Brownian motion on sheared nanocomposites: New experimental results and a revision of Peclet-time as a characteristic time scale — •Rick Dannert, Roland Sanctuary, and Jörg Baller — University of Luxembourg, Laboratory for the Physics of Advanced Materials, Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg

Oscillatory shear tests performed on concentrated and semi-diluted suspensions of spherical silica nanoparticles in Diglycidyl Ether of Bisphenol A (DGEBA) have revealed a low-frequency relaxation process. The latter was interpreted as Brownian stress relaxation resulting from strain-induced perturbations of the isotropic filler distribution [1]. To cover a broader concentration range we have extended the rheological investigation of the low-frequency anomaly to ultra-diluted DGEBA/silica suspensions. We illustrate that the Brownian relaxation process depends in a complex manner on the volume concentration: For very dilute systems, the relaxation frequency increases with the concentration, whereas for semi-dilute or concentrated systems, the opposite behaviour can be observed. This non-monotonic dependency of the relaxation frequency can no longer be modelled by classical Peclet frequencies. Therefore we show that modified Peclet-frequencies including a structural, concentration dependent length scale viz. the mean particle distance lead to an accurate description of the Brownian relaxation process for all concentrations.
