על הקורס
Rheology for Chemists is an accessible but comprehensive introduction to the principles and practical application of rheological and viscometric techniques for R&D, quality control and process development needs.  The course will benefit anybody looking to obtain relevant, repeatable information on the flow behavior of suspensions, emulsions, solutions, gels and waxes.  The two day course comprises lectures, QA sessions and some practical demonstrations of current popular techniques and test equipment.


Private consultation and web-meeting

Upon completion of the course, and included in the price, a one-month private consultation and support period commences during which attendees can gain expert one-on-one advice on any aspect of their rheology or viscosity testing requirements.  A private web-meeting consultation is also included, to be taken at any time throughout the support period.  This will allow course attendees to share rheology or viscosity results, discuss specific issues and view any relevant additional training or support material

תכני הקורס
  • Shear and extensional flow modes
  • Shear stress and shear rate: Definitions and typical calculations for real-life flow processes
  • Viscosity, Newtonian and non-Newtonian behaviour
  • Shear-thinning fluids and the “anatomy” of their flow curves
  • “Structured” fluids and yield stress
  • Thixotropy: What is it and what are the implications for flow processes and reliable measurements?
  • Viscosity measurement methods: viscometers and rheometers, spindles, cones, plates and cylinders.
  • Viscoelasticity: Understanding the concept
  • Quantifying viscoelasticity: elastic and viscous moduli, phase angle and compliance
  • Viscoelastic characterisation methods: Oscillation and creep methods
  • Relating rheology to real-life, for example: texture and application properties, stability assessments, mixing, pumping and filling behaviour.
  • Using rheological parameters as product descriptors to aid competitor comparisons, benchmarking and scale-up operations
