Applying Rheo-Microscopy to Understand The Rheology of Suspensions & Emulsions
February 27, 2020 (Thu)  7:00  Greenwich

Overview

Rheo-microscopy combines rheological measurements with simultaneous investigation of the material’s microstructure, and how it may evolve in response to external stresses or strain fields. This webinar will showcase the power of rheo-microscopy for an accurate interpretation of rheological data in the context of three case studies, each on a different material and using a different rheometry technique. See how rheo-microscopy can help you better understand your rheology data with direct knowledge of the material’s microstructure and microdynamics during testing.
