Nordic Rheology Society

Rheology is defined as the science of the deformation and flow of matter, which means that rheology in some form enters almost every study of material properties. In the Nordic countries, rheological measurements have become standard techniques in both industrial and academic research. The Nordic Rheology Society has been formed as a meeting ground for engineers, physicists, chemists and biologists engaged in rheology in industry and academia.

The 28th Nordic Rheology Conference was held August 21-23, 2019, at Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. The official organizer of the meeting was the Nordic Rheology Society (NRS). The actual organization of the meeting was excellently executed by the Organizing Committee, chaired by Roland Kádár (Chalmers university of Technology) and Mats Stading (RISE and Chalmers University of Technology). This annual meeting attracted delegates from countries outside the Nordic regions as well. In fact, 17 nations were represented at the meeting and in total about 125 participants were registered, which certainly was satisfying for the organizers. Following the tradition of earlier NRCs, the conference was preceded by a rheology course given by three of the invited lecturers. The special theme of NRC 2019 was chosen to be “Rheology of cellulose systems”.
This year four invited speakers gave plenary lectures: Professors Gareth McKinley from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Alain Dufresne from Grenoble INP, Daniel Söderberg from Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm and Professor Paula Moldenaers from KU Leuven. Altogether 47 contributions were presented orally during the three days and the poster session, taking place August 22, contained 32 contributions. Many different aspects of the flow behaviour of materials were covered during the meeting, for example ice cream rheology, viscosity control of dense suspensions, dispersion and percolation of nanocrystalline cellulose particles in polymers, viscosity of oil-based drilling fluids, recent development in extensional rheology and pipe rheology.

Anton Paar Nordic AB invites you to the “Rheology week 2019”. This workshop is targeted to people interested in a two-day Rheology basics seminar, RheoCompassTM Software Training or the single applications for polymers, paints & coatings, or food. It is possible to participate in the basic Rheology seminar, RheoCompassTM Software Training or single application days, or all together in one week.
The Rheology week will take place in Malmö, Sweden on November 18-22, and the last day of registration is October 15. More information on the workshop agenda and registration can be found here.

The NRC 2019 ended with two sessions on Rheometry and Non-Newtonian fluid mechanics and a joint lunch for all participants. The conference gathered almost 130 rheologists from 17 different countries around the world. In addition to the special topic on Rheology of cellulose systems there were also a wide range of presentations also in the sessions mentioned before as well as on Food and bio and General Rheology,

Next year in June the NRC 2020 will be held in Espoo close to Helsinki in a joint arrangement with the Nordic Polymer Days.

Paula Moldenaers started the last day of the Nordic Rheology Conference by showing how to use rheology and phase separation for tuning the structure of nano-composites. It is possible to reach better conductivity with carbon nanotubes as well as a range of different morphologies.
