The Bingham Medal of The Society of Rheology is awarded to Prof. Hassager for fundamental contributions to the dynamics of complex fluids. Together with three other Bingham medalists, Hassager developed the two-volume series, Dynamics of Polymeric Liquids. His group perfected the technique of filament stretching rheometry to make definitive measurements of the steady and transient rheology of polymer melts and entangled solutions.

The Bingham Award will be presented to Prof. Hassager at the 92nd
Society of Rheology Annual Meeting. The NRS congratulates the first Bingham Medalist from the Nordic countries!
