Rheology

Rheology is at the heart of many aspects that are covered by this web page and the following subsections cover a spectrum of topics that have been investigated over a thirty year period. Most of the work is concerned with polymer melt rheology, however more recently the deformation and breakup of lower viscosity fluids has been studied in relation to ink jet printing formulations and droplet formation. The section also includes a set of rheology lecture notes given in the 2011 final year Chemical Engineering Cambridge Tripos.
