About Rheology 2019


Complex materials, macromolecular and multi-phase, are ubiquitous in engineering applications as well as natural systems. These materials are challenging to design, and difficult to understand, due to the complexity of underlying physico-chemical mechanisms. In this course, lectures will focus on fluid-like complex materials, and their deformation behaviour. Flow and deformation behaviour is important for engineering materials such as plastic melts, paints and emulsions. Similarly, natural materials such as blood, plant cell wall, tissue function based on their mechanical response.

This short-term course on Rheology of Complex Materials will be based on introductory aspects as well as application areas. The course contents are designed to help develop an understanding of the rheological behaviour of materials, and its relevance to fundamental understanding and industrial applications.
