Rheology

Our group maintains a full complement of state-of-the-art rheometric instruments, allowing for mechanical characterization of fluids ranging from dilute solutions to gels, pastes, and glasses:

- TA Instruments AR-G2 stress rheometer(s)
- TA Instruments AR-2000 stress rheometer
- Rheometrics ARES strain rheometer
- TA Instruments ARES-G2 strain rheometer
- Paar Physica MCR-500 strain/stress rheometer
- Bohlin CVO rheometer

In addition to measurement capabilities, we are also interested in the development of new tools and methods for analysis of rheological data. Two examples are given below.
