Anton Paar eAcademy: Basics of Viscoelasticity (Repeat Session 2)
Oscillatory tests have emerged as a tool to characterize structured fluids. In oscillatory tests aim is to understand the flow behavior of the material under low or high deformations to establish a material-structure-property correlation. Further, these tests are useful for quality control so as to determine the effect of rapid deformations on the end products and to correlate physical stability.

Trainer: Nigel Foong
Mr. Nigel Foong joined Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman as Assistant Laboratory Manager for 3 years. He served in laboratory management and look over analytical instruments of material characterization in spectroscopy (FT-IR,UV-Vis, Polarimeter, Fluorescence, AAS),thermal analyser (TGA, DSC) and X-ray Diffractometer (XRD).
With his varied experience in materials characterization, Nigel is currently with Anton Paar as the Application Specialist supporting customers in rheology and particle characterization.
