A Basic Introduction to Rheology and Rheometry PART 1 – Viscosity

Rheology is defined as the science of deformation and flow and in particular refers to materials that show viscoelastic or non-Newtonian behaviour when stressed. Such materials include suspensions, emulsions, polymer solutions and foams to name but a few. 

Part 1 of this two part webinar series will focus on viscosity and viscometry, introducing the basic concepts and tests that can performed on a rotational rheometer to measure yield stress, thixotropy, and shear dependent flow properties.

Philip Rolfe is one of the team of Technical Specialists for the Malvern Panalytical Kinexus rotational rheometer systems based in Massachusetts, USA. He graduated with in Chemistry from the University of Plymouth, UK and also is a Chartered Chemist and Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry. Phil has worked with Malvern Panalytical and previously at Bohlin assisting and teaching people rheology since 1998, and so has a wealth of practical experience for the application of rheology as well as helping customers solve common rheological problems.
