Rheological Measurements is an intensive short course at the University of Minnesota. It is designed to give practicing engineers and chemists an understanding of rheology fundamentals, principles of measurements, and applications to problem solving.
Hands-on experience with commercial rheometers is provided. Emphasis is on optimal instrumental techniques, data reduction and interpretation, and case study applications. Included are: polymer solutions and melts, dispersions (suspensions), gels, foods, colloids, crosslinking systems, biological/biomedical, microfluidic, and process flow applications.
