Rheology Lab Information

Aalto University
Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems
  • 2 x Anton Paar MCR 302
  • Capillary Break-up Rheometer (CaBER)
  • Polarized light imaging: allows observation of effects like flow induced crystallization processes of polymers or local shear induced effects as they may occur in liquid crystals
  • Bi-cone geometry for interfacial rheology: enables two-dimensional rheological measurements of interfacial films at the air/liquid and the liquid/liquid interface
  • Small angle laser scattering (SALS): the formation or deconstruction of aggregates in suspensions under shear can be monitored and correlated with the rheological properties

Celebrating 30 years of the Annual Transactions of the Nordic Rheology Society: Part 4
The 30th Volume of the Annual Transactions of the Nordic Rheology Society (ATNRS) was published in conjunction with the Nordic Rheology Conference 2022. To celebrate this anniversary, we are highlighting some notable papers published in the ATNRS over the years.

The 12th Volume of the ATNRS featured a paper by de Souza Mendes and Dutra that introduced a new viscosity function for viscoplastic liquids. To demonstrate the effectiveness of this function, the authors successfully fitted it to the data for Carbopol aqueous solutions, a drilling fluid, an water/oil emulsion, a commercial mayonnaise, and a paper coating formulation. You can read the full manuscript here: Link to the paper.
