Perform rheometry tests for improving processing, product development, and research. Use your rheometer to predict issues, solve problems, and save time!
Rheology is a powerful tool to save time and money through reducing the amount of trial and error in formulation and processing. From coatings to foams, rheology is essential for many industries, including plastics, food, biomedical, consumer products, and chemical development. As a subject rarely taught for industrial professionals, rheology offers many benefits for understanding soft material and fluid properties but is often underutilized. Make your rheometry data insightful through learning the basics of rheology for data interpretation and test method design.
This course covers the basics of rheology data collection and analysis for rotational and oscillatory tests. Areas covered in this course include: capabilities of a shear rheometer, rheology variables, general applications, sample preparation, and distinguishing good and bad data.
After taking this Course you will be able to:
- Understand rheology terminology
- Select a rheometry test method that gives pertinent information for your application
- Conduct rotational and oscillatory tests by setting the appropriate variables and conditions in the rheometer
- Interpret data in terms of sample flow and deformation
- Make meaningful comparisons between your rheometry data and data from others
- Identify good and bad rheometry data, troubleshoot bad data
- Lessen your dependency on others to make methods and analyze results
- 7 hours of video content, replayable at any time
- PDF documents of the presented content
- Video quizzes that test your understanding and address applied scenarios
- Questions submitted to the course instructor will be answered within two days
- Free consultation session on how to improve or get started with rheometry in your lab
- Deep understanding of the content without excessive theory
