15TH EUROPEAN SCHOOL ON RHEOLOGY

7-11 September 2015 in Leuven, Belgium

7 SEP 2015


The European School on Rheology is a weeklong intensive short course, designed to give practicing engineers and scientists an understanding of the fundamentals of rheology, its principles of measurement and its application to problem solving. A selection of covered topics is: 




  • Introduction to Rheological Phenomena

  • Shear and Extensional Rheology

  • Linear and Non-linear Viscoelasticity

  • Polymer Rheology and Polymer Processing

  • Suspension Rheology

  • Microrheology and Microfluidics

  • Conducting Rheological Measurements

  • Rheo-optics

  • Interfacial Rheology

  • Problem Detection 



The speakers involved in the 2015 edition are: Prof. Gerald Fuller (Stanford University), Prof. Chris Macosko (University of Minnesota), Prof. Giuseppe Marrucci (University of Naples), Prof. Randy Ewoldt (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champain), Prof. P.D. Anderson (TU Eindhoven), and Prof. J. Vermant (ETH Zürich), as well as Prof. Paula Moldenaers, Prof. Peter Van Puyvelde and Prof. Christian Clasen (KU Leuven).



An important aspect of the course is the laboratory experience. During the lab sessions, participants are exposed, in small groups, to various types of rheometers and measurement techniques. 



The registration fee is 1500 € for regular participants and 500 € for PhD students (limited availability).
