Wednesday 13 June


09:00 - 11:30
Rheology Course - Morning session
Location: Lecture Theatre EL4

Theoretical session
Prof. Jeff Morris

The lectures will cover:
- basic definitions, classes of measurements and the behaviors seen in different types of materials (polymers, emulsions, suspensions), interfacial rheology and its relevance and the influence of rheology on some phenomena, such as the behavior of bubbles in yield stress fluids.

11:30 - 12:30
12:30 - 15:00
Rheology Course - Afternoon session
Location: -

Practical session
The session takes place in the laboratories of Department of Biotechnology and Food Science, NTNU, or SINTEF (the group will be split)

Welcome reception and organ concert
