MODE COUPLING THEORY OF ARREST

MCT: a theory of the glass transition in bulk colloidal suspensions

= collective diffusion equation with Langevin noise on each particle

MODE COUPLING THEORY OF ARREST

MCT: a theory of the glass transition in bulk colloidal suspensions

= collective diffusion equation with Langevin noise on each particle

MCT calculates correlator by projecting down to two particle level

Bifurcation on varying S(q,0) c(r) (i.e. concentration / interactions)

fluid state, Y(q,∞) = 0 amorphous solid, Y(q,∞) > 0

- MODE COUPLING THEORY OF YIELDING
- M. Fuchs and MEC, PRL 89, 248304 (2002):
- Incorporate advection of density fluctuations by steady shear
- no hydrodynamic interactions, no velocity fluctuations
- several model variants (full, isotropised, schematic)

CAPILLARY VS BROWNIAN STRESS SCALES

- Complete wetting: colloid prefers solvent to air
- Energy scale for protrusion DE = s p a2 >> kBT
- Stress scale for capillary forces Scap = DE/ a3 >> kBT/a3 = Sbrownian
- Capillary forces can overwhelm Brownian motion
- Possible route to static, stress-induced arrest, i.e. jamming
