Creating Synergy between Rheological Experiments and Theory

Take part at the Amherst Rheology Course 2022 (ARC22). The focus is on rheological data and on visual expression of rheology.

A series of lectures and tutorials will introduce you to a quantitative approach to rheology. We will review rheology fundamentals, linear and non-linear, and build on these fundamentals to gain understanding of rheological experiments by in depth analysis (extraction of material parameters, superposition, and overlay plotting, for instance) and modelling with rheology theory.

Lectures will be followed by hands-on exercises using the IRIS Rheo-Hub software. We jointly practice the lectured material and express quantitative rheological information in visuals as typically needed in written reports and orals. Participants will use their own PCs for these practice sessions and develop fluency in rheology. Plenty of personal guidance will be given over Zoom. The general objective of ARC22 is to generate an interdisciplinary group experience, in which we will discuss rheological experiments and theory.
