Rheology Lab Information

Tampere University
Laboratory of Material Science and Environmental Engineering
  • Anton Paar MCR 301
  • Göttfert Rheograph 6000 capillary rheometer
  • Magneto-Rheological Device (MRD): used to analyze the influence of a magnetic field on the viscoelastic properties of magnetorheological fluids (MRF) and ferrofluids
  • 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
  • Pressure chamber for the capillary rheometer: can be used to simulate different pressure drops, thereby measuring the viscosity close to process conditions

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!
