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 2 of this two part webinar series will focus on viscoelasticity, introducing the basic concepts and tests that can performed on a rotational rheometer to measure viscoelastic properties.

Speakers

Dr. Shona Murphy is a Product Technical Specialist for Malvern Panalytical’s rheometry products based in the UK headquarters. She has completed a PhD in Polymer Science from the University of Birmingham studying the rheological characterisation of the influence of supercritical carbon dioxide on polymer reptation time. Shona is dedicated to helping our customers make high quality and meaningful rheological measurements.
