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 NRC gathers about 100 participants, mainly from the Nordic countries, but also from other parts of the world, to a meeting of high scientific quality and industrial relevance. During the conference there will be an exhibition of rheological instrumentation, techniques and equipment. The exhibition will be located in the main foyer of the Chalmers Conference Centre where also posters will be displayed and coffees will be served during brakes. Please have a look at the venue in the Movie and contact Johanna Andersson , +46 10 516 67 37 for more information.

This is the venue for the NRC 2019 and as you can see, something is missing. In August the venue will be full of rheologists, exhibits, posters, and most important: you. Even if there is ample time to register, you can already now submit an abstract or sign up for space at the exhibition. Read more about the Conference at the NRC web site.

A Gothenburg Throat?
Waqas Qazi successfully defended his thesis “Exploring the role of rheology in bolus flow
Waqas Qazi successfully defended his thesis “Exploring the role of rheology in bolus flow using an in vitro approach” with Professor Peter Fischer as academic opponent. The in vitro approach is the so called “Gothenburg Throat” which is a model of the human throat used to monitor the flow of a bolus and how it depends on the food rheology, as well as to study different types of swallowing disorders. Dr Qazi showed that validation of the model as compared to human swallowing and the influence of rheological properties on human swallowing. For example was safe swallowing shown to be facilitated by fluid elasticity.

The thesis is available at research.chalmers.se.
