Really Simple Rheology

Close-up of rheometer geometryFree Webinar and Q&A session

Really Simple Rheology is an easy introduction to the often-confusing field of viscosity and rheology testing.  The fast-paced 30 minute webinar provides a short crammer in rheology and viscosity fundamentals followed by useful advice and guidance for anybody looking to gain a better understanding into how their products flow and how to measure those properties. The webinar covers:

Basic concepts in rheology

  • Shear stress, shear rate and viscosity.
  • Non-Newtonian liquids.
  • Structure and yield stress: why is it so important and how do we measure it?
  • Viscoelasticity: The concept of elasticity in liquids.

Viscosity testing approaches for suspensions, emulsions, solutions and gels.

  • Brookfield viscometers and Brookfield viscosity.
  • Viscosity/shear rate profiling.
  • Controlled stress testing and zero-shear viscosity.

Rheology testing methods

  • Oscillation testing methods and viscoelastic moduli.
  • Relating viscoelastic measurements to real-life behaviour.
  • A simple 5-point rheological profile approach.

After the presentation a Q&A session enables you to ask any questions you like relating to the webinar content or your own particular issues.
