Shear-induced particle migration for nickel concentrated suspension is described using a continuum diffusive-flux model. The model was applied to solve the flow patterns and particle concentration distribution of mono-modal suspensions in a pressure-driven tube flow. The prediction was confirmed by experimental observations. The implication of this phenomenon on powder injection molding is discussed.
