Rheology Lab Information

Aalto University
Department of Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering
  • Anton Paar MCR 301
  • UV curing system: allows the investigation of rheological properties during UV-initiated curing reactions e.g. in inks, glues and coatings
  • Pressure cell: can be used to simulate process conditions, measure the effect of pressure on rheological properties, or prevent sample evaporation above the boiling point
  • Immobilization cell: used to investigate the immobilization kinetics and water retention of paper coatings
  • SER fixture for extensional rheology: provides information about molecular structure, branching, temperature stability, shrinkage, relaxations, and brittleness as well as the adhesion and peel strength of films and fibers

Professor Ole Hassager is the 2020 Bingham Medalist
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. Further information about Professor Hassager can be found here.

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!
