Rheology is a niche, but very important subject and a brief introduction to the background on the meaning of rheology is given in a one page pdf below.
Rheology has been central to much of the Polymer Fluids Group research at Cambridge and as such there are a number of Conference presentations on specific aspects of rheology that are listed below. The reology section is subdivided into;
- Polymer melt rheology, which also includes most of our Multipass Rheometer (MPR) polyethylene processing work and was used to capture the “Cross Slot” flow birefringence movie shown on this page.
- General rheology, where a range of presentations on topics such as shear thinning, extreme rheology and throat rheology can be found.
- CNT rheology, involved a detailed experimental and modelling activity on Carbon Nanotube suspensions.
- Ink jet rheology. Ink jet fluids have a low viscosity, but their rheology can be crucial in relation to ink jetting performance.
- Lecture notes. I have given a Rheology lecture course at Cambridge for many years and include notes from that course.
