Nicolas Cuny receives the 2022 Thesis Prize of the French Rheology Group

on the 16 December 2022
The 2022 thesis prize of the French Group of Rheology has been awarded to Nicolas Cuny for his thesis entitled "Derivation of constitutive models: from the microstructure to the rheology of soft dense suspensions" carried out at LIPhy and supervised by Romain Mari and Eric Bertin. The thesis deals with the modeling of dense suspensions of soft particles, which have relatively complex rheological properties, such as the existence of a threshold stress for flow. Nicolas Cuny has developed in his thesis a new statistical physics approach that allows to obtain a tensor constitutive model from the dynamics of the soft particles of the suspension, and thus to link the rheology to the anisotropy of the microstructure.
