A Basic Introduction to Rheology and Rheometry
Dr. Shona Murphy
Product Technical Specialist, Malvern Panalytical
Rheology is defined as the science of deformation and flow and in particular refers to materials that show viscoelastic or non-Newtonian behaviour when stressed. Such materials include suspensions, emulsions, polymer solutions and foams to name but a few.
Part 2 of this two part webinar series will focus on viscoelasticity, introducing the basic concepts and tests that can performed on a rotational rheometer to measure viscoelastic properties.
Rheology and viscoelasticity
June 19 2018 - June 19 2018
15:30 - 16:30 (GMT) Greenwich
Rheology is important across a wide range of applications and industries and a basic understating of the subject can help to better understand your processes and applications.
Who should attend?
Anyone who is interested in viscoelasticity who would benefit from a basic introduction to the concepts and measurement protocols.
What will they learn?
How to measure and describe the viscoelastic properties of your materials under process and application relevant conditions.
