Polymers, Rheology and Processing

This web site is about a range of Scientific, Engineering and Innovative subjects involved with Polymers, Rheology and Processing. For example, the very visual movie clips on this page show in one case, stress fields in flowing molten polymer and  the second movie shows how water filaments break up when subject to very high extensional strain rates.

You will find short introduction pdfs to each of the headline topics followed by a review and selections of past conference powerpoint presentations that describe different stories in the various scientific and  technological fields. There are also movie clips of  scientific experiments and  Cambridge University lecture notes on rheology and polymers.

Science can  also be thought of as a creative subject and the site has some selected stories relating to “Something to say”. This section includes short articles such as  how scientists and engineers can be thought of as creative people, in addition to a range of topics that  could be classified as opinions rather than scientific facts.

Finally there is an audio movie presentation section where a number of 2017 power point  presentations have an additional audio track that hopefully aids description of the respective stories being told.

The scientific research described in this web page has either been created by myself or an army of Postoctoral or PhD students working with me at Bristol, Sussex and Cambridge. I am indebted to all their talents in contributing to this work and acknowledge their invaluable contribution. Any publications that appear on this web site are for educational purposes only.
